Why last night rocked:

  • EDM over WPG, 5-3; Jets, Pavelec allow 5 goals on 25 shots
  • NYR over NJ (74P), 2-0; Devs' Clarkson made quite the impression with 19 PIMs as King Henrik stops 13 for the shutout. You read that correctly.

Why last night jonesed:

  • No joneses whatsoever on Monday

Panthers Playoff Update:

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

Focusing on clubs within 6 points of Panthers (70P); teams FLA needs to lose in bold

  • OTW (74P) at BOS, 7 p.m.; Broons victorious in last 8 vs. Sens
  • NYI at WSH (67P), 7; Believe it: Isles are 2-for-2 against Caps in 2011-12
  • PHI (75P) at SJ, 10:30 (NBC-SN); Sharks: 11-1 in last 12 vs Flyers with 8-game win streak dating to 2003-04

Next up for the Cats:

Did you know:

  • FLA has outscored the Leafs 21-9 while going 4-0-1 in past five

Monday’s Organizational News:

  • As you're likely well aware by now, none

Monday’s NHL Transactions:

  • Not even going to attempt to personally gin up that list, so here ya go
