Monday Caterwaul: Florida Panthers Open Forum

Forward Sean Bergenheim led the Cats in shots on goal Sunday evening with 5, his highest single-game total since a 5-3 Florida Panthers victory in Toronto way back on February 28.

Though he collected no points in last night's 3-2 (SO) loss, the club's overall record is a somewhat baffling 5-5-2 when Bergie fires at least 5 SOG. This situation has improved markedly from the beginning of the season, however, as Bergenheim (2G-3A) and the Panthers are 3-0-2 over their last five games when he has garnered those illustrious 5 or better.

Unquestionably met our quota of "fives" for the week. Onward...



Final - 3.25.2012 1 2 3 OT SO Total
New York Islanders 0 1 1 0 1 3
Florida Panthers 1 0 1 0 0 2

Why last night rocked:

  • PIT over NJ, 5-2: Devils are 2-4-1 over last seven

Why last night jonesed:

  • WSH over MIN, 3-0: Caps' Holtby stops 28 not-so-Wild shots for third career shutout in 18 NHL games (!)
  • BOS over ANH, 3-2 (REG): Only six of 15 Western Conference clubs have a "true" winning record vs the East

Panthers Playoff Update:

Why tonight is a Big Deal in SoFla:

Focusing on clubs within 5 points of Panthers (81P); teams FLA needs to lose in bold

  • OTT (86P, 6GR) at WPG (78P, 7GR), 8:30 p.m.: final game in season series; Sens lead 2-1 though haven't met since mid-January

Next up for the Cats:

  • Tomorrow from Montreal; LBC Game Thread goes live at 7

Did you know:

  • Since a four-game win streak in February the Panthers are 1-3-1 in past five on road
