Saturday Caterwaul: Florida Panthers GameDay Open Forum

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

The Cats open a home-and-home against Southeast Division-leading Hurricanes.

The Carolina Hurricanes are tied with the Winnipeg Jets for first in the Southeast (Canes have two games in hand), but luckily for the Panthers, they are 0-5-0 against the Southeast this season. Carolina is 5-4-1 in their last ten games, and will play a divisional opponent in eight of their 14 games in March.

Panther News:

  • Bob McKenzie reports that forward Sean Bergenheim will miss the rest of the season and is expected to have surgery for hip/lower abdominal issues. Bergenheim won his grievance arbitration with Florida, meaning the team must pay him his salary dating back to start of season and medical expenses during lockout as it was determined his injury was suffered prior to lockout.
  • George Richards reports that forward Alex Kovalev's time with Florida might be over. The 40 year old veteran is not traveling with the team and does not have a locker stall.
  • Richards also reports that both Scottie Upshall and Kris Versteeg could be back tonight. Both forwards are traveling with the team to Raleigh.
  • Defensemen Mike Weaver is expected to be out for an extended period of time.
  • San Antonio Rampage play their only game of the week tonight, against the Chicago Wolves.
