Very little news at this early time, but USA Today's AP feed is reporting the Cats dropped a close one in a shootout to host Taparra in Tampere.
Scoring: Horton, Duco (FLA), Nieminen, Junnila, Peltonen (TAM). Shootout: FLA 0-3, TAM 1-3.
In other news, the Blackhawks currently lead Davos 9-1 with a click over five minutes remaining in the third period. Lovely.
