In three previous NHL All-Star Game appearances - twice as a starter - representing Buffalo (2007, '08) and Chicago (2009), defenseman Brian Campbell has 1 goal, 3 assists, 3 SOG & 1 GW assist (all scoring in last two games). Will it make a difference onstage tonight?

Why last night rocked:

  • Wings haters will have a field day with 7-2 Detroit loss at Montreal

Why last night jonesed:

  • Habs haters - or anyone with a non-Canadiens horse in Eastern Conference playoff slotting - are not amused

Panthers Playoff Update:

Why tonight is a Big Deal in SoFla:

  • Soupy makes his NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft debut this evening (NBC-SN, 8 p.m.); LBC will be live with chat action at 7:30. Full list of players here.

Next up for the Cats:

  • February 1st, in one of those typically meaningless division games vs Washington

Did you know:

  • Florida had no representation in last year's Fantasy Draft. Silly...of course you knew that. There was someone in a Screamin' Cat uni present for one portion of the weekend's festivities: the newly-christened Pride of Charlotte.
  • AP recently released their updated Stanley Cup odds for those who care.

Wednesday’s Organizational Transactions:

  • D Tyson Strachan to SA from FLA
  • G Brian Foster to CIN from SA

Wednesday’s NHL Waiver Wire

Placed on waivers:

  • G Antero Niittymaki (SJ; and man...is he pleased)
  • F Cam Paddock (LA); unconditional
