Tuesday Caterwaul: Panthers GameDay Open Forum - '96 Celebration now Dvorak-free

As the 2010 Florida Panthers organization sets out to celebrate/acknowledge/pay respects to the 1996 Eastern Conference Champions this evening, the Cats will have to do so without their only active tie-in to those few days of glory: winger Radek Dvorak has been placed on injured reserve due to a shoulder issue. Rochester's Evgeny Dadonov (no, not this guy) will cover the open spot on right wing.

Dvorak's absence leaves only Colorado defenseman - and Columbus fan favorite Adam Foote as the lone member of either club's roster to have played in the '96 Stanley Cup Final. In fact, there's far more history represented behind the benches: Avs' coaches Sylvain Lefebvre, Adam Deadmarsh, and Florida's Gord Murphy all appeared in the four-game series.

Granted, there will be no official "reunion game" (if that idea sounds eerily familiar, well, it is), but this is yet another gesture attempting to remind on-the-fencers that icing a winner in South Florida is not an impossibility.

There appears to be no local television coverage in either market. Live Game Chat at 7pm.
