Tuesday Caterwaul: Florida Panthers GameDay Open Forum

Bruce Fedyck - USA TODAY Sports

The Panthers look to snap a three-game losing streak as they host the outfit formerly known as the Atlanta Thrashers.

The Winnipeg Jets land in Sunrise for the second time this season looking to close the gap on the division-leading Carolina Hurricanes. The wacky, compressed schedule sees them visit for the final time Friday evening. The Panthers exploded for five goals in the third period the first time around to romp to a 6-3 victory. Another outcome like that would be most welcome, especially after the 1-2 to the chin the Panthers took from the 'Canes over the weekend. With goaltender Jose Theodore placed on injured reserve, Jacob "Alien" Markstrom is expected to get his third start of the season tonight for the injury-riddled Cats. The Panthers have recalled RW Jon Rheault from the San Antonio Rampage. Rheault was the leading scorer for the Rampage with 37 points in 50 games. For a frigid take on the latest Jets' chemtrails check out our friends over at Arctic Ice Hockey. Look for the LBC GameThread to chest-burst into view right here at 7 ET.

UPDATE: The Panthers have announced that Stephen Weiss needs wrist surgery and will miss the remainder of the season.
