"It was funny how we dominated early and that was probably the worst thing because maybe we thought it was going to be easy."

Why Saturday rocked:

  • PIT over WPG, 8-5; Jets after 31 road games: 67GF, 102GA
  • NYR over PHI, 5-2; Flyers: 8 goals scored in last four games (1-2-1)
  • MTL over TOR, 5-0; Leafs' tenders faced 18 shots. Total.
  • EDM over OTW, 4-3 (OT); falls under "rocks" category due to host Sens' failure to hold two leads

Why Saturday jonesed:

  • No actual joneses to be found. A good day.

Panthers Playoff Update:

Why today is a Big Deal in SoFla, beyond the obvious:

  • WSH at NYR, 12:30 p.m. (NBC); no introduction needed here
  • TB at PIT, 7; after pulling for Pens a day ago, we're all about the Bolts now
  • PHI at DET, 7:30 (NBC-SN); Flyers are 2-14 at Joe Louis Arena since 1990

Next up for the Cats:

Did you know:

  • Former Islander Sean Bergenheim has recorded 6 shorties and 5 gamewinners in 128 appearances at Nassau Coliseum
