  • NOTES: The Cats were Western Conference killers a year ago - at least vs those perpetual candidates for relocation in California. So far against the Golden State in 2015-16: 0-3-1 with a minus-9 goal differential. Viewed another way: taking those games out of the present equation leaves Florida with an 8-5-3 record...Because it's Monday we're gonna go the Jaromir Jagr Stats route for a moment (numbers reflect NHL All-Time standings): 10th in games played (1,568; 44 behind Ray Bourque), 5th in goals (730; 1 behind Marcel Dionne), 6th in assists (1,088; 47 behind Paul Coffey), 4th in points (32 behind - and say it with respect while removing your cap - Gordon Howe), 13th in PP goals (206; somehow 6 back of Keith Tkachuck & 2 ahead of that Wayne guy), 1st in game-winning goals (130; 12 better than Phil Esposito), 6th in game-tying goals (11; knotted with a who's-who of legends, leader is Dave Andreychuck with 17). Whether he finishes his professional career in North America or elsewhere, this guy is a multi-generational gift to fans of the game everywhere....The Panthers will be holding a clothing drive at the BB&T Center this evening...Todd will be covering tonight's game so give him a follow on the Tweets.

"It's a tough way to lose but we got to take the positives from it. We battled through adversity, down two with three minutes left. We lost but we'll try to mimic the way we played offensively.''

- Panthers F Nick Bjugstad following Saturday's dramatic - and timely - come-from-behind effort (Sun-Sentinel).
