"Bruins leading scorer Tyler Seguin also got Tuesday off, but not by choice. He was scratched after missing the team breakfast and a team meeting, but should return to the lineup in this one. How he responds to the disciplinary move will be one of the key things to watch in this one."

- NESN's Douglas Flynn, demonstrating a mastery of understatement. Seguin will be gunning for one of those "statement game" deals stemming not only from the recent benching but looking to break a lifetime pointless streak against Florida (four games, but still...)

Why last night rocked:

  • It. Did. Not. Bound to run into one of those after all the recent help FLA has received

Why last night jonesed:

Three games, three lousy outcomes

  • Washington over Ottawa, 5-3
  • Carolina over Edmonton, 5-3
  • Philadelphia over Buffalo, 5-4 (OT) Game should have been over twice in regulation; alas, points for everyone!

Why tonight is a Big Deal:

Could be some movement around the East this evening

  • Ottawa at New Jersey, 7 p.m.
  • Chicago at the Isles, 7
  • Tampa Bay at the Rangers, 7
  • Pittsburgh at Philadelphia, 7
  • Vancouver at Montreal, 7:30

Next up for the Cats:

Lastly, how about a hearty welcome to our newest pugilistic overlord?
