Monday Caterwaul: Panthers GameDay Open Forum

New, comments

Rumors abound pointing to a possible return by starter Jose Theodore (knee), who retains an overall winning record (15-13-1, 3 SO, 2.40/.923) when facing Boston. Scott Clemmensen - still the only realistic guarantee for a spot on the lineup card among Florida goaltenders this evening - sports a 5-3-1 mark (2.24/.929, 2 SO) vs the B's. And yes, those stats reflect the horror that was this, their most recent lovefest.

Update: via the club, Theodore "not expected to be in the lineup" tonight.

Why last night rocked:

  • Hey, no loser points!

Why last night jonesed:

  • WSH over CAR, 2-1 (REG); no need for a recall into the significance of this one as Tvo says no to 43 SOG
  • MTL over NYR, 4-1; Pacioretty leads trio of Habs' three-pointers with 2G, 1A
  • PIT over TB, 6-3; Malkin's 5 points (3 third period goals) sink Bolts, losers of seven in a row

Playoff Update:

Why tonight is a Big Deal in SoFla (beyond the obvious):

  • WPG at OTW, 7:30 p.m.; Happily - for now - Sens have won both games in 2011-12 by combined score of 10-5
  • BUF at DET, 7:30; Wings are 6-1 in past seven vs Sabres

Next up for the Cats:

Mere hours away vs Boston from One Panther Parkway; the LBC Game Thread will be playing for Rio Grande Short-Haul Trucking, Briggs and Brown Sanitation, First State Bank of Salome & Woody's Smokehouse at 7.

Did you know:

Broons are 7-1 in last eight at the BAC, including 3 victories in the shootout...C David Krejci has an 11-game point streak (5G/11A) dating to December 17...
