Why last night rocked:

  • PHI over PIT, 4-2; a wash, generally
  • TB over MTL, 4-3 (REG); along with the Rags tonight, pencil in another angry bunch in Sunrise on Saturday

Why last night jonesed:

A six-point "buffer" just morphed into a four-point nailbiter; Panthers hold destiny in their own hands as both FLA and the 'Peg have played 37 games. Four more meetings remain between them...

  • WPG over LA, 1-0 (OT); where's that Sutter magic?
  • CAR over TOR, 4-3 (OT); points for everyone

Why tonight is a Big Deal in SoFla:

  • BUF at WSH, 7 p.m.
  • CGY at OTW, 7:30

Next up for the Cats:

This evening vs New York. As for tonight's chat: where does it say that the LBC Game Thread’s got a right to kick down doors, torture suspects, deny medical attention and legal counsel? Where has it been? Now that you ask: on hiatus, until 7.

Did you know:

Friday starter Scott Clemmensen is 3-3-0 (2.45/.915/1 SO) lifetime against the Rangers, while Henrik Lundqvist has fared a tad better at the other end, going 13-7-1 (1.77/.941...and 5 shutouts) vs Florida
