Tuesday Caterwaul: Panthers GameDay Open Forum

New, comments

[Flyers GM] Paul Holmgren said there are no new updates for the team's four injured players. Jaromir Jagr and Zac Rinaldo are day-to-day. None of the four has a chance to play tonight. Danny Briere (above) is the only one who flew to Florida with the team - and that's because his father is along on the trip. James van Riemsdyk, out since Jan. 14, has not yet resumed skating.

Why last night rocked:

  • CAR over WPG, 2-1 (REG); kinda big, as Jets outshoot Canes 30-16
  • LA over OTW, 4-1; Kings' Clifford: goal, assist, fight, 3 SOG. Fantasy gold.

Why last night jonesed:

  • TOR over NYI, 3-0; Lombardi's two goals more than enough for Leafs

Panthers Playoff Update:

Why tonight is a Big Deal in SoFla:

  • BOS at WSH, 7 p.m.; Broons 6-4-1-1 in D.C. since lockout
  • WPG at NYR, 7; Rags are 6-1-1 at home in last eight
  • BUF at NJ, 7; Sabres have lost 11 straight on the road
  • TOR at NYI, 7; anyone care to vote against Kessel getting a point or three?
  • CBJ at TB, 7:30; Bolts shooting for fourth-straight victory (picked a good night for it)
  • PIT at STL, 8; Pens looking for seventh victory in as many tries
  • OTW at PHX, 9; Sens are 6-1 over Yotes in last seven meetings

Next up for the Cats:

  • Tonight vs Philadelphia; the LBC Game Thread plays a Slazenger One at 7 p.m.

Did you know:

Noticed in the last Game Thread that not everyone in the LBC community has discovered the "Wide" screen format editor. Utilizing this feature dramatically alters and improves the look & user-friendliness of the site. It's that big of a deal. Just head to the top of the page, look to the right, and click "Wide" in the grey box. This will now be the default view anytime you log in :)

Monday’s Organizational Transactions:

  • D Tyson Strachan recalled; replaces Dmitry Kulikov (surgery Monday, out 6-8 weeks)
