GAME 4 of 4 SEASON SERIES: 2-1 NYI

The Cats wrap their series with the Isles tonight, looking to even it up at two for the year. I'm having a tremendously difficult time getting my thoughts through to the keyboard thanks to EVERYONE FREAKING TALKING here in the office. Can't hear myself think. Really brutally annoying. So in summation, there's a game tonight, live blog for both clubs will be here (thanks Dominik), it's my birthday, and I had lots of ideas for this preview but I NOW CANNOT REMEMBER. Go Cats.

Hadn't seen any projections for New York's starting, so The Box is going with J-Mac.

Apparently you don't understand who you're dealing with here. McCabe? He'll eat things that make a billygoat puke.
