The Florida Panthers are getting closer to filling their head coaching vacancy.
The team, which had whittled its candidates down to six last week, now has three finalists. According to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, GM Dale Tallon will continue to narrow the list and likely make his hire by the end of the week.
The six finalists were Dan Bylsma, Marc Crawford, Ron Wilson, Gerard Gallant, Tom Renney, and Bill Peters.
George Richards of the Miami Herald reports Crawford remains in the mix.
