From November of 2009, the cutesy third-jersey teaser, which proved to be rather effective at the time, moving a boatload of rebranded product out of the PantherLand doors.

Why did I personally welcome the "JetBlues", as they came to be known, upon their introduction? They provided a temporary - and ultimately false - identity to a club sorely lacking in one.

Adios, bro.

Why last night rocked:

  • NSH over WPG, 3-1: Jets now six points behind 8th place Buffalo with seven games remaining

Why last night jonesed:

  • BUF over MIN, 3-1: speaking of the Sabres, they've picked up points in eight straight games; anyone scarier right now?
  • OTT over PIT, 8-4: Sick - Pens had 2-1 lead out of the first. Sickier - Sens used more goalies (2) than Pittsburgh
  • BOS over LA, 4-2: Kings rained 18 shots on TimThom in third period

Panthers Playoff Update:

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

Focusing on clubs within 5 points of Panthers (86P, 8GR); teams FLA needs to lose in bold

  • MIN at WSH (82P, 7GR), 5 p.m. (NBC-SN): Caps are 7-10 vs Western Conference
  • NJ (90P, 7GR) at PIT, 7: Devs lead series 3-2 in season finale
  • BOS (89P, 8GR) at ANH, 8: Ducks are 8-5-1 vs East

Next up for the Cats:

  • Final home matinee as Isles usher in the last two weeks of 2011-12 season. If there's one thing the LBC Game Thread can't stand seeing, its Americans fighting Americans, at 4:30. Before then take a spin around Lighthouse Hockey.
  • Need Tickets for tonight's advertised-as-historic-but-not-really event? Seats starting at $9 via TiqIQ

Did you know:

  • F Kris Versteeg has 8 points (3G) in ten career games vs the Islanders, and their arrival couldn't be more timely: Steeger last scored a goal on February 12, with only a single assist in the ten matches since.
