Why last night rocked:

  • NJ over WSH, 5-0; Parise scores hat trick as Neuvirth stops 15. Ovie: 1 SOG
  • CHI over OTW, 2-1 (REG); Karlsson's eight-game point streak halted

Why last night jonesed:

  • TB over NYR, 4-3 (OT); Bolts now 6-2 in last eight

Panthers Playoff Update:

Why tonight is a Big Deal in SoFla:

Focusing on clubs within 6 points of Panthers (72P); teams FLA needs to lose in bold

  • BUF (66P) at VAN, 10 p.m.; stretching a bit here, but the Sabres have been impressive of late by going 5-0-2 in past seven

Next up for the Cats:

  • Hosting Nashville this evening; LBC Game Thread gets rocking at 7. Before then take a look at the consistent goodness being churned out by On The Forecheck and Preds On The Glass.

Did you know:

  • The Cats snapped a three-game losing streak vs Nashville stretching back to '09 vs on January 11, 2011; tonight's potential starter Scott Clemmensen picked up the 3-2 victory in regulation from Sunrise. The Preds are expected to go with well-rested Pekka Rinne, who is 0-2 lifetime vs Florida.

Friday’s Organizational News:

  • Rampage D Tyson Strachan is "back in sunny Florida". Pretty certain he hasn't been loaned to the Everblades. Nothing further as of early this morning.
  • The official site has been updated with this. At least it's not guaranteeing anything. Yet.

And worth mentioning...

  • The Maple Leafs canned head coach Ron Wilson Friday night, reportedly to be replaced by former Ducks bench boss Randy Carlyle. Tears continue to flow out of Toronto.
