OT 1

*

Why last night rocked:

  • NYI over WSH, 3-0; 2 goals for Parenteau as Isles stuff Caps in D.C.
  • NJ over WPG, 5-1; Sykora, Clarkson, Elias, Foster all plus-3
  • OTW over TOR, 3-2 (REG); Turris, Alfredsson with 1G/1A
  • TB over BOS, 5-3; pair by Bolts Overlord Horts not enough to salvage state sweep

Why last night jonesed:

  • PIT over CAR, 2-1 (SO); Neal with the Skillz Komp winner
  • NYR over NSH, 3-0; plus-3s for Girardi and McDonagh
  • PHI over MIN, 5-1; Jagr, Read each 2A as Wild continue slide to 8th spot in West

Panthers Playoff Update:

Why tonight is a Big Deal in SoFla (beyond the obvious):

  • WSH at MTL, 7:30 p.m.; Caps are winners of last two at Bell Centre (and a shutout loser at home vs the Isles last night)

Next up for the Cats:

  • Tonight from Colorado; the LBC Game Thread learned a very important lesson today: never shop east of Beverly Hills...before 9.

Did you know:

  • Panthers have never lost to Avs on a Wednesday in Denver (2 ties & 1 regulation win, that lone victory coming on November 17, 1999...the last such meeting).

Tuesday’s Organizational Transactions:

Tuesday’s NHL Waiver Wire

  • None

OT: Please help us stop SOPA before it's too late...
