DETROIT -- The Florida Panthers are re-organizing themselves after changing coaches and making national headlines in the process.The Panthers (11-10-2) visit the Detroit Red Wings (11-10-2) at Joe Louis Arena Thursday at 7:30 p.m.Florida fired Gerald Gallant on Sunday night after a 3-2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes in Raleigh. Gallant then had to take a cab to the airport in order to return home to Miami. The Panthers said there was a mix up and they had intended to have a car service take Gallant to the airport.General manager Tom Rowe is Floridas new coach. Assistant coach Mike Kelly was also fired.The Panthers lost 2-1 in a shootout in Chicago Tuesday night in Rowes debut as the teams coach.During their practice on Wednesday at Joe Louis Arena, the Panthers worked on new defensive schemes and changed their power play personnel a little bit.We went over a lot of details in our video meeting on 1/8defensive 3/8 zone coverages and neutral zone assignments and this was a good day to do that, Rowe told the Miami Herald.Florida goaltender Roberto Luongo talked about the changes.Its a bit of a different style than 1/8Gallant 3/8 was and its going to take some time to implement what they want to show us, Luongo said. In the long run, it will be beneficial to our club to play a game where we are more structured and give us fewer scoring chances.Detroit is 3-0-1 in its last four games following a 3-1 win over the Dallas Stars at Joe Louis Arena on Tuesday night.That was thanks mostly to the efforts of goaltender Petr Mrazek, who made 34 saves. He has a 1.45 goals-against average and .949 save percentage in his last two games in the absence of Jimmy Howard, who is out with a groin injury.I think when hes playing his best hockey the puck sticks to him well, coach Jeff Blashill told on Wednesday. I also thought he had a high, high compete level around the net, where it seemed like there was no way the puck was going in unless it was a back-door or some kind of rebound play.Ive been with him enough to know those nights where it just feels like theres no way the pucks going in and thats what it felt like last night when I was on the bench. He certainly looked like he was on top of his game.Neither left winger Tomas Tatar nor veteran defenseman Niklas Kronwall practiced Wednesday for Detroit. Blashill said they took maintenance days and are expected to play Thursday.Florida has won both games between the teams this season. The Panthers won in Florida 4-1 on Oct. 15, and 5-2 in Detroit on Oct. 30.Both Floridas former and current coach played with the Red Wings. Gallant spent most of his playing career with Detroit and Rowe played one season with the Red Wings. Aaron Jones Super Bowl Jersey . According to a report from the Vancouver Province, the Lions are expected to replace former DC Rich Stubler with defensive backs coach Mark Washington. Blake Martinez Super Bowl Jersey . The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season. "It is still taking a little time to sink in what Ive achieved this week as was the case when I won the FedEx Cup but then it just kept getting better and better as the days went on and I am sure this will be the same," he said. . The return match will take place next Wednesday. Udinese leads Fiorentina 2-1 in the other semifinal. Napoli staged a second-half comeback from two goals down after Gervinhos opener and a stunning strike from Kevin Strootman. Mason Crosby Super Bowl Jersey . Irving scored 23 points, Tristan Thompson had 20 points and 10 rebounds and the Cavaliers beat the Denver Nuggets 117-109 on Friday night. Preston Smith Super Bowl Jersey . Francis told several hundred members of the European Olympic Committees that when sport "is considered only in economic terms and consequently for victory at every cost . OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Offensive tackle Jake Long was not immediately signed by the Baltimore Ravens on Wednesday and his physical is ongoing.Long, the No. 1 overall pick of the 2008 draft, is visiting Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Alabama, to get consultation on his knee. Long has suffered multiple anterior cruciate ligament tears over his eight-year career and was limited to four games last season.The Ravens, who begin training camp Thursday, are interested in signing Long as insurance for first-round pick Ronnie Stanley, who is expected to start at left tackle. There is also a chance that Long could compete for the sstarting job at left guard.ddddddddddddLong, 31, told ESPN in late June that this is the healthiest he has felt in five years. He hasnt started a game since October 2014.The other veteran player who isnt expected to participate in the first practice of camp is wide receiver Mike Wallace. He will be placed on the non-football injury list after he failed to pass the teams conditioning test Wednesday. The Ravens expect him to be on the field over the next couple of days after he passes the test. ' ' '
