Wednesday Caterwaul: Florida Panthers Open Forum

Wow.

From the Don't Steal My Sunshine collection, volume XIV: the Florida Panthers have two regulation losses in eleven games played since March 8, the first to Philadelphia (5-0) and second to Carolina (3-1) last week. The Flyers eventually took their medicine in a stunning 2-1 Cats non-OT victory some ten days after the initial defeat, while one match remains against the Hurricanes (April 7 in Sunrise, and untelevised).

Why last night rocked:

  • BUF (86P/5GR) over WSH (84P/5GR), 5-1: despite an even-strength goal, soon-to-be UFA Alex Semin rides off with a minus-3 as Sabres win 5th straight. Last defeat? In a shootout on March 17 to Florida

Why last night jonesed:

  • NJ (92P/5GR) over CHI, 2-1 (SO): the shootout giveth, and the shootout taketh away as Devils remaineth 3 points up on Cats
  • BOS (93P/6GR) over TB 5-2: A reach, yes, but not unreasonable

Panthers Playoff Update:

Why tonight is a Big Deal in SoFla:

  • Honestly? None of this evening's six games - and only one in the East (Rags/Jets) - are required viewing, but NBC-SN will be showing Wings/Jackets, two of Florida's next three opponents, at 7:30. Otherwise paint the garage. Learn a new language. Fix that clogged jet in the Jacuzzi.

Next up for the Cats:

  • Tomorrow from St. Paul; the LBC Game Thread gets underway at 7:30.

Did you know:

  • F Wojtek Wolski's regulation marker against Montreal Tuesday was his 4th as a Panther, and only the fourth time in 16 games he surpassed 2 shots on goal (had 3 vs Habs)
