Sunday Caterwaul: Panthers Open Forum

New, comments

Weird things happen in situations sometimes. Of all the games I could have done something like this, it came in my 900th game. It's fun, on a weekend night when my kids are here. It's pretty exciting. I'll remember this. With the win, three goals, my kids being there, I think I have a lot of reasons to remember this game.

Why last night rocked:

  • TOR over OTW, 5-0; this one's a reach but actually benefits Florida

Why last night jonesed:

  • WSH over MTL, 3-0; multi-point performances by Semin, Laich move Caps within spitting distance of FLA
  • NJ over PHI, 6-4; Devs' Foster: 2G-1A, minus-1 in hang-on victory

Panthers Playoff Update:

Why today is a Big Deal in SoFla:

  • BOS at WSH, 12:30 p.m. (NBC-SP)
  • PIT at NJ, 1
  • PHI at NYR, 1
  • WPG at MTL, 2

Next up for the Cats:

  • Tuesday from D.C.; the LBC Game Thread will be calling Strategic Air Command headquarters shortly after the Go-Code is issued at 6:30.

Did you know:

  • With the completion of the season series vs Tampa Bay, Florida has nine games remaining vs division opponents: Carolina (4), Washington (3), Winnipeg (2); four at home/five on road.
