Florida hosts the Detroit Red Wings tonight at 7:30...our Game Preview at 3, followed by the LBC Live Game Thread at 6. Onward...
- Hockey Weekend Across America kicks off with "Wear Your Favorite Hockey Jersey" Day. Our attorney friends will be looking extra sharp this afternoon sporting their JetBlues during family arbitration hearings.
- Wings fans are looking forward to carrying over last night's success in Tampa Bay with a similar effort in Sunrise. Conversely, Bolts Faithful were pleased just to get the Yzerman hoopla behind them.
- Behold the Panthers' next Five Minute Man.
- GM Tallon on listening to trade proposals for any and all of his players: "This team hasn’t done anything in 10 years, so why wouldn’t I?"
- More on center Stephen Weiss and the Panthers' "tough decision" to come.
- The Hurricanes will be retiring former captain Rod Brind'Amour's #17 this weekend. Gotta say, we're really going to miss his performances against Florida: 63 points (28 goals) in 84 career games. His 6 gamewinners were a hoot as well.
- FS Florida's excellent Inside The Panthers series premieres a new episode, "Hockey in the Community", immediately following this evening's game.
- Um, OLE!
- Lastly, here's video of the non-goal goal from Wednesday's 4-2 Flyers victory. Thought it was BOB's leg, turned out to be Nodl's. Hosed in any case.
