Florida F Mike Santorelli has 1G/1A with 9 SOG in 3 career games against the Anaheim Ducks, but enters tonight's match with a rather dreadful 3G and minus-5 in 25 games from Sunrise in 2011-12.

Why last night rocked:

  • TB over WSH, 2-1 (REG); Stammer hits third 40-goal season. Gee Caps, only 24 SOG this time?
  • VAN over TOR, 6-2; 'Nucks now 10-for-10 vs Leafs, who are 1-5 over past six

Why last night jonesed:

  • Any evening which featured a double-header of Animal House & The Blues Brothers - combined with a Washington loss - can only be summarized as anything but a jones.

Panthers Playoff Update:

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

Teams FLA needs to lose in bold…

  • NJ (70P) at MTL, 6 p.m.; Devils have won past two vs Habs, games ended in identical 5-3 results. Victory for Canadiens effectively places them back into realistic-shot territory.
  • COL at WPG (62P), 8:30 p.m.; Avs are 1-3-1 on road in last five while Jets are 3-1-1 at home in same span. Whatever: Go Avalanche.

Next up for the Cats:

  • Hosting Anaheim tonight in an early start; LBC Game Thread gets labeled a sockdologizing old man-trap at 5:30. Check out our buds at Battle Of California and Anaheim Calling for the left-coast view.

Did you know:

  • Ducks are 4-1 vs Florida since 2005-06. Corey Perry has 7 points (4G) in five career games vs Cats

Saturday’s Organizational News:

  • D Nolan Yonkman recalled from San Antonio (will wear #34); D Colby Robak reassigned

Saturday’s NHL Transactions:

  • To PHI: D Pavel Kubina
  • To TB: F Jon Kalinski, 2nd rd pick (originally Florida's and conditional), 4th rd pick
