Thursday Caterwaul: Panthers GameDay Open Forum

Not much action on the newswires since the Panthers eked out an OT victory against Washington on Tuesday; only recurring theme appears to be the oft-repeated "Tallon in talks with Vokoun's Agent", but again, that's not really news.

A couple of excellent previews of tonight's match can be found at SBN's On The Forecheck and Preds On The Glass, one of our very favorite "independents". Check 'em out. Onward...

  • Center Stephen Weiss has 4 points (all assists) and 10 shots in the past two games.
  • Lifetime, goaltender Tomas Vokoun is 1-2 with a 2.01/.930 and 1 shutout against his former club. Scott Clemmensen is 1-1, 2.46/.905. Take your pick.
  • We've given LW David Booth a little grief here from time to time in what on the surface has been an underwhelming year, but he's collected a solid 15 points (10 goals) in 19 matches at the BankAtlantic Center.
  • Rostislav Olesz has 3 points in 4 games vs Nashville.
  • Buried beneath "bigger" names in the headlines, former Predator Mike Santorelli is wicked hot right now, with 7 points (3g) in his last 8. A +3, 10 hits, and 25 SOG over that period are testament to his tenacious style.
  • Florida is shooting for a second-straight victory; the Preds seek their seventh.
  • Defenseman Shea Weber leads all Nashville skaters with 25 points (7g).
  • Former Panther Wade Belak has played sparingly (12 games, 0 points, 14 pim).
  • Think Michael Frolik has any memory of this? Said it before: guy's a certified beast.
