"You know, you [used to] go into Florida almost thinking you're going to get two points as a team before. I think now teams coming in know they're gonna have a tougher game than maybe in previous years. The fans definitely have been helping that and coming out and supporting."

Panthers Playoff Update:

Why tonight is a Big Deal in SoFla:

Teams FLA (65P) needs to lose in bold...

  • NJ (66P) at BUF, 7 p.m.; Devils: 8-3-2 in Buffalo since lockout
  • OTW (64P) at TB, 7; Sens have won first two games, combined score of 8-3 (both in Ottawa)
  • NYI at WPG (58P), 8:30; Isles defeated Jets with SO victory at Winnipeg, December 20
  • TOR (62P) at CGY, 9; after losing previous four, Leafs beat Flames 3-2 (REG) in October

Next up for the Cats:

  • Hosting Ottawa tomorrow; LBC Game Thread opens at 7
