Sunday Caterwaul: Panthers Open Forum

"Krys' commentary to me is that he did say something. At the end of the day, we're confident there will be no further punishment and he will be cleared of wrong doing and his name will be cleared. Krys is a family man with kids, his whole family is in Canada and are hearing this everywhere. It's tough on all of them. He hopes there is an understanding that there was no ill intent on his part. It was a misunderstanding. He wants his record to be clean when all this is over.''

Scott Norton, longtime agent for Panthers forward Krys Barch, following an accusation of a racially-motivated slur by his client directed at Montreal's P.K. Subban at the conclusion of the first period of Saturday's eventual 3-2 Florida victory. The league is investigating the allegation. Much more from OFP here.

Why last night rocked:

  • DAL over BOS, 4-2
  • TOR lost in regulation to...

Why last night jonesed:

  • ...WPG. Further, just about everyone who realistically needed to pick up points did, with WSH, NJ, TB, OTW and BUF adding to their totals

Why tonight is, in fact, not a Big Deal in SoFla:

  • CGY at NSH, 6 p.m.; only game on the sched, kids

Next up for the Cats:

Thursday from Madison Square Garden; LBC Game Thread at 6:30. WPG and WSH each play one game in that span.

Did you know:

Of FLA's 39 games, 21 have ended as one-goal affairs (regulation and OT/SO)
