Saturday Caterwaul: Panthers Open Forum

New, comments

During the [second intermission], DeBoer implored his players to avoid the meltdowns they’ve encountered in previous third periods. “We talked between the second and third about having a mind-set that we were going to go out and take over the game.”

- The Star-Ledger's Rich Chere. And that they did.

Why last night rocked:

All together now: no overtime!

  • NYR over PIT, 3-1
  • CAR over BUF, 4-2
  • ANH over NYI, 4-2

Why last night jonesed:

Never appearing completely comfortable, Alien was a somewhat less-than-stellar 24-for-27 in his return to NHL ice, on a night when his club badly needed the all-important Big Save

Why tonight is a Big Deal in SoFla:

This whole "rooting for the opposition" thing supremely sucks, but we're all about the Sabres and Sharks this evening

  • VAN at BOS, 1 p.m.
  • OTW at PHI, 1
  • WPG at BUF, 7
  • DET at TOR, 7
  • TB at MTL, 7
  • NJ at PIT, 7
  • CAR at NSH, 8
  • NYI at PHX, 8
  • WSH at SJ, 10:30

Next up for the Cats:

Hosting VAN Monday; the LBC Game Thread identifies itself as Frieda's boss at 7

Did you know:

FLA is now 3-10 at NJ since 2005-06, with a frightening 24GF and 44GA

On the table:

Nothing's hotter at the moment than this chess match:
