[M]ost in the building probably won't be looking forward to seeing [Panthers winger Mikael] Samuelsson again. In the 2010 playoffs he scored seven goals against LA in their six-game series loss to Vancouver.

- MayorsManor.com, contemplating the psychological effect of Samuelsson's possible return to Florida's roster Thursday against the Kings. "Sammy" is 8-9-17 in 25 games lifetime vs. Los Angeles

Why last night rocked (and man...did it rock):

  • Detroit over Tampa Bay, 4-2
  • Colorado over New Jersey, 6-1
  • Anaheim over Montreal, 4-1

Why last night jonesed:

  • Not technically a jones, but no clear winner for FLA in the standings as Boston doubled up Toronto 6-3. Then again, what do we care if the Northeast contenders continue beating the tar out of each other?

Why tonight is a Big Deal:

  • Pittsburgh at Washington, 7 p.m.
  • Rags at Carolina, 7
  • Phoenix at Winnipeg, 8:30
  • Ottawa at Dallas, 8:30
  • Montreal at San Jose, 10:30

Next up for the Cats:

Tonight at Los Angeles (WQAM, FS-FLA); Game Thread opens 10(!) p.m.
