Lucky for me, the jokes write themselves 'round these here parts. Today's question: what a female (we'll forget that surname for a moment) may be doing hanging around unrinals in Newark...

Devils @ Cats, 7:30p - BankAtlantic Center, FSN-FL

 

Panthers: 28-20-8  64P, 2nd in SE    Devils: 37-17-3 77P, 1st in ATL

LAST 10:    FLA: 7-3-0      NJD: 8-2-0

HOME & AWAY:  FLA (H): 15-7-5    NJD (A): 18-7-2

GAME 3 of 4    SEASON SERIES: 2-0 NJD

ALL-TIME: 38-18-7 NJD

 

 

A tough loss for Florida on Sunday, and if the Cats' haven't mentally moved beyond it, they're in big trouble. This is a serious-as-a-heart-attack New Jersey squad, who is 12-3 against the Panthers in the past fifteen. A tall order, which does not get any easier over the next week, staring at Chicago and Boston.

Presumably Tomas Vokoun will get the nod, though he was pulled in his last start against the Devils after giving up two goals on twelve shots. If Scott Clemmensen doesn't start for Jersey - short of Brodeur's return - call it a kidnapping.

 


New Jersey Devils Injuries

Questionable

Player Injury Type Injury Date
Paul Martin other-excused 02/17/2009
Brendan Shanahan other-excused 02/17/2009

Out (IR / Out / Suspended / Physically unvailable)

Player Injury Type Injury Date
Martin Brodeur elbow 11/02/2008

What's with Shanny? "Excused"? Didn't want to make the trip? Otherwise, Brodeur is expected at any time, but you have to debate the wisdom in replacing a major component of this club during a hot streak such as they're on. Even with MB.

 


Florida Panthers Injuries

Out (IR / Out / Suspended / Physically unvailable)

Player Injury Type Injury Date
Bryan Allen knee 10/12/2008
Rostislav Olesz sports-hernia 12/06/2008

Thankfully, no change. In fact, I haven't heard anything new on Olesz in a while. Few more weeks? Similar to what I said above, where do you put him once he's healthy?
