Detroit — Cats are notorious for playing with their food before they eat it.

And that’s exactly what the Florida Panthers did to the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday at Little Caesars Arena, playing to a scoreless tie during the opening 25 minutes before pouncing to the tune of four second-period goals in a span of 9:49.

Florida rookie Anton Lundell scored twice in the game (once short-handed), Sam Reinhart had a goal and an assist and Anthony Duclair, Maxim Mamin and Gustav Forsling each added goals for the Panthers (54-15-6), who’d go on to take the game, 6-1.

BOX SCORE: Panthers 6, Red Wings 1

“It’s deflating every time they score,” Red Wings captain Dylan Larkin said. “But I think after the second, third…there was a quietness on our bench. It seemed like (the Panthers) started to wake up and start moving around offensively, and we just didn’t do enough to stop them.”
