Head coach Andrew Brunette says the red-hot Florida Panthers have their eyes set on a bigger prize than breaking team or individual records.
The Panthers, 19/4 to win the Stanley Cup, beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-0 on Thursday to record a franchise best 28th home victory in a season.
Currently 28-6-0 at FLA Arena, the Panthers beat the previous record set in 2017/18, when they went 27-11-3.
Against the Blackhawks, forward Jonathan Huberdeau set an NHL record for a left wing with his 71st assist of the season and Captain Aleksander Barkov reached 30 goals for the second time in his nine-season NHL career.
The Panthers' 28 home victories leads the NHL and remarkably they have scored four or more goals in 26 of their 34 home fixtures.
Overall, the Panthers have scored the most goals in the NHL and their 46-15-6 record leads the Atlantic Division. They have won 11 of their past 14 games and, with 98 points, Florida are five points away from matching their franchise best set in 2015/16.

The Panthers' sustained success this season has been particularly impressive after Joel Quenneville resigned in late-October and was replaced by rookie Brunette.
The 48-year-old reflected to the media after the win over the Blackhawks: "There's still a lot of hockey left. We're not content just breaking these little (team) records.
"We have our eyes on a bigger prize and we still have a (long) ways to get there."
