Why tonight is a Big Deal:

Few games but a couple of huge points up for grabs in the East this evening...

  • Washington at Buffalo, 7 p.m.
  • New Jersey at Carolina, 7
  • Islanders at Rangers, 7

Next up for the Cats:

  • Hosting Toronto just a day from now. The LBC Game Thread, like Charlton Heston in Omega Man, becomes a one-man army at 7 tomorrow.

Did you know:

  • Tuesday's opponent is 42-28-11 under newly-re-upped head coach Ron Wilson in 81 games since January 1st, 2011; he's 1-2 versus FLA over that span, the lone Leafs' victory coming in a shootout. (Thx @SteveBurtch via Twitter)
