Tuesday Caterwaul: Panthers Open Forum

Despite the temporary downer of a shootout loss, #9 is now Florida's all-time assist leader with 232 in 599 games

On a night when their execution and mental sharpness flickered on and off, the Bruins needed go-to stars to pick up the rest of the team. They were fortunate to have Rask at the top of his game. The Boston puckstopper stuffed 38 of 40 shots, not including the three he turned back in the shootout.

- Boston.com’s Fluto Shinzawa. Not to take anything away from an unexpected yet thoroughly thrilling come-from-behind points-grab by the Cats, but look above once again and replace "Bruins", "Rask" & "Boston" with "Panthers", "whomever is healthy" & "Florida". Sound like a familiar premise?



Final - 1.16.2012 1 2 3 OT SO Total
Boston Bruins 1 1 0 0 1 3
Florida Panthers 0 2 0 0 0 2
