  • NOTES: After losing four of their first five games that went past the sixty-minute mark, the Panthers have now won two straight...The Blues have taken six in a row against the Cats. The last time Florida was victorious was a 4-0, Tomas Vokoun shutout win back on October 31, 2009...Injured D Dmitry Kulikov practiced Monday, but will not play tonight...Former Panther Scottie Upshall has 4 goals in 18 games for the Blues since earning a one-year deal in training camp...St. Louis D Kevin Shattenkirk is currently riding an eight-game point streak...This will be Florida's fourth chance this season to build a three-game winning streak. The previous three attempts all ended in two-goal defeats.
  • QUOTED:

"Look at the standings and you'd like two points and not let them pick up one, but we did what we had to do [in Detroit] and now we got a tough building. We got to keep winning … and start climbing the standings."

- Sunday hero Brian Campbell looking ahead to this evening's event (Sun-Sentinel).
