Why last night neither rocked nor jonesed:

  • OTW over PHI, 6-4; both clubs now have more points/"lesser" conference standing than FLA

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

  • WSH at LA, 10:30 p.m.; Caps are 1-3 (9GF-16GA) on S. Figueroa Street since 2003

Next up for the Cats:

Tonight from a be-tarped BankAtlantic Center vs Vancouver; the LBC Game Thread (7 p.m.) asks you to come down and see the, uh, mile of cars we have at the lot.

Did you know:

Lifetime, FLA and VAN are 1-1 on Mondays against each other, both from BC, and both ending in a 2-1 regulation score (3/7/1994 & 10/11/2010)

On the table:

Canucks "player ratings" vs Boston...F Kris Versteeg has 7P (2G) vs VAN...G Roberto Luongo is 4-0-1 with 1 SO vs FLA...Coach Dineen on backup G Jacob Markstrom (knee): "I'm confident he'll be fine to be an option.''; expect a Scott Clemmensen start...OFP with the ups & downs of the season so far...D Brian Campbell is riding a three-game point streak (all assists) for the third time this season; he's collected 9P (1G) in as many games...Canucks' D Sami Salo is out, thanks to this...David Booth will not play, as of Sunday afternoon...Remember hating with all your humanity having the Cats face ATL and CAR 8 times per year after the lockout? Try this: "The San Antonio Rampage take on their in-state rivals, the Houston Aeros, [Sunday] at the AT&T Center for the seventh of 12 matchups between the two clubs this season." SA eventually lost 4-3...Tonight's game preview goes live at 3 p.m...Lots to mull over at Nucks Misconduct this morning.

UPDATE: G Brian Foster has been recalled, will back up Clemmer
