Saturday Caterwaul: Panthers GameDay Open Forum

Our team right now can’t give up 20 minutes of free frigging play and expect that you are going to be able to win the game. It was frustrating to watch us...I didn’t have enough good players.

- Jets coach Claude Noel commenting on his club’s effort in the first period of Friday’s eventual 2-1 Florida victory (Globe & Mail)

Why last night rocked:

  • NYI over OTW, 2-1 (OT); Parenteau's 2A power Isles to extra-frame victory

Why last night jonesed:

  • NYI over OTW, 2-1 (OT); SHG with 12 seconds remaining in 2nd period salvages a point for Sens

Panthers Playoff Update:

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

  • PIT at BOS, 1 p.m.; Pens winners of three straight in Beantown
  • NJ at PHI, 1; Road club has won each of past three in 2011-12
  • WSH at MTL, 2; Caps have won past three at Habs, combined score of 9-2
  • TOR at OTW, 7; Sens victorious in last three (what is it about "threes" today?) vs Leafs

Next up for the Cats:

  • Tonight from Tampa; the LBC Game Thread doesn't like the idea of spending all this time with a man who carries a gun and goes around whacking people at 6:30.

Did you know:

  • Bolts have won their past three (there's that number again) vs Florida by a combined score of 11-5

Friday’s Organizational Transactions:

  • None
