"[The Panthers have] a lot of offensive punch, I think. They've got some guys who can put the puck in the net. We're going to have to be on top of our game defensively and making sure we're not turning the puck over.”

- Jets blueliner Mark Stuart (#5 above), proving the old adage that hockey players don’t read the papers, via the Winnipeg Free Press

Why last night rocked:

  • CAR over WSH, 3-0; huh? 2 PP and 1 SHG for Canes in stunner

Why last night jonesed:

  • PIT over MTL, 5-4 (SO); gold stars for everyone! 1G/1A for Letang in return from injury

Panthers Playoff Update:

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

  • NYR at BOS, 1 p.m.
  • PHI at NJ, 1
  • OTW at ANH, 4
  • MTL at TOR, 7
  • CAR at NYI, 7
  • BUF at STL, 8
  • TB at PHX, 8

Next up for the Cats:

Tonight from Da Peg (no local TV); for those of you just joining us, the LBC Game Thread will be teaching poodles how to fly at 6:30.

Did you know:

Prior to the last game between WPG/ATL & FLA (a 5-2 Panthers victory on November 10) seven straight meetings were decided by one goal: three in regulation, three SO and one OT. Cats were 2-5 over the stretch.

Friday’s Organizational Transactions:

  • F Michal Repik cleared waivers in reassignment to San Antonio
  • Forwards Scottie Upshall, Sean Bergenheim and Jack Skille returned to the lineup Friday
