Monday Caterwaul: Panthers Open Forum

New, comments

The NHL's Southeast Division coaching ranks went and blowed all up this morning, resulting in Florida benchboss Kevin Dineen now being tied for second in longevity among the five teams. Blink and ya missed it.

As fate would have it the Panthers will face both Carolina (tomorrow) and Washington (12/5) within the next eight days.

No ill will whatsoever directed toward Paul Maurice or Bruce Boudreau, though most of us will likely agree we won't be shedding tears over the loss of the latter. Got to believe New Jersey's Pete DeBoer has something up his sleeve for Mo, a longtime pal.

Why last night rocked:

  • No overtime in Ottawa's 4-3 coach-killing victory against Carolina

Why last night jonesed:

  • The Leafs pasted Anaheim 5-2

Why tonight is a Big Deal:

  • We're all Minnesotans this evening, as the Wild host our beloved Bolts

Next up for the Cats:

  • Tomorrow at the Carolina Muller(?)Canes, 7pm
