Welcome to this evening's Open Thread: Where we're not about to miss "Happy Pony"
Not much time to savor a tasty victory only hours ago as the Cats arrive in Pittsburgh for what likely will be their final game at The Igloo. Personally? Good riddance; one more vestige from the Francis/Samuelsson/Jennings for Cullen/Parker/Zalapski travesty goes the way of the Dodo. But sadly this will live on in late-night cable reruns.
The only major roster change may be the addition of LW Michal Repik, recalled from Rochester in case C Dominic Moore is still extricating a stick from his chest. Been that kind of year.
It was a story of "twos" just last night, when Michael Frolik banged home dos goals, backed up by dual-assist performances from Nathan Horton and Stephen Weiss. Scott Clemmensen stopped 26 shots en route the Florida's victory over the uber-hot Devils. Can they carry it over?
Frank, Hooks, and the posse at PensBurgh will be manning the home fort, and check them out for a Pens-centric angle.
Thanks for coming in from the South Florida rain for what should be typical fireworks between two clubs who don't appear to share much love. Which, of course, rules. Go Cats.
