Saturday Caterwaul: Panthers Open Forum

"They came hard. They kept putting the puck behind our net — that was their game plan. They put it behind the net, then almost threw it blind in front of the net. That’s how they got their [game-tying] goal."

- Flames forward Olli Jokinen on his former club's effort Friday via the Calgary Herald



Final - 12.16.2011 1 2 3 OT SO Total

Why last night rocked:

  • Ottawa over Pittsburgh, 6-4; Pens suffered 2nd straight loss
  • Buffalo over Toronto, 5-4 (REG); only positive here is the Leafs failing to reach OT

Why last night jonesed:

  • New Jersey over Dallas, 6-3; Devils grab 3rd victory in as many games

Why tonight is a Big Deal:

Huge day on tap, with three Southeast competitors in the mix...

  • Boston at Philadelphia, 1 p.m.
  • Vancouver at Toronto, 7
  • New Jersey at newly-Martinless Montreal, 7
  • Buffalo at Pittsburgh, 7
  • Anaheim at Winnipeg, 7
  • Tampa Bay at Columbus, 7
  • Islanders at Minnesota, 8
  • Rangers at Phoenix, 8
  • Washington at Colorado, 9

Next up for the Cats:

  • Hosting Carolina tomorrow; matinee game, with local TV. LBC Game Thread purrs on at 4:30.
