A quick explanation of exactly what this is for those new to the community: LBC GameDay Caterwauls are open forums designed for fans to interact and share insight, post theories, link to game-relevant articles/Tweets and generally discuss the Main Event and GameThread to follow. Heard a lineup update? Players scratched or added? Post it below! And please no sharing of illegal/pirate video feeds (there won't be one tonight anyway); if there is an officially sanctioned broadcast, we'll let you know.
The regular season version is certainly more in-depth with lots of information on both teams, game-related linkage, stats and videos so do check back next Saturday and every game day to follow throughout 2015-16. Today we're winging it, essentially so I can jump back into the groove of these things.
Anyway, a hearty Thank You from all of us here at the 'Box for tuning in, be that time measured in weeks, months or years (8!).

- ETC: Coach Gallant had earlier mentioned a desire to play his opening night roster, but anything is possible as he may wish for a final look at Martin Havlat, Connor Brickley, Quinton Howden, etc. Similar to Florida's approach, the Bolts are expected to ice "most of the regulars", per TampaBay.com. FOX Sports Florida will debut its Panthers Preseason Special following the game at 10:30 ET.Video and a few interviews from Friday's practice here via the club. Longtime LBC obsession & Panthers legend Billy Lindsay (@LindsayBHockey) joins freshly-minted radio play-by-play man Doug Plagens (@DougPlagens) tonight on WQAM, so give 'em a listen...and a follow!
