Florida Panthers' coach Kevin Dineen inplied that Stephen Weiss has been playing hurt this season.

With only one goal and four points in 10 games, Weiss has struggled thus far in this shortened 48-game season."The physical side of it is something you're always trying to stay on top of and stay aware. He's got a big heart and he's going to come out and play every night. That's a factor. Stephen is a guy I rely on and we rely on a lot in so many different situations and over the course of my tenure here and his career I think it's an area he's embraced as the go-to-guy. For the first couple of weeks here it hasn't gone as planned, but with a guy like Stephen I know that worm's going to turn here,'' said coach Dineen.
