Hockey Insider Elliotte Friedman mentioned on a Sportsnet broadcast that teams are monitoring the situation regarding Florida Panthers defenseman Alex Petrovic, who has been a healthy scratch in three of the last five games. Petrovic might not be the guy the Cats want to lose off the back end. The last two times he suited up, the Panthers beat Anaheim 8-3 and held Detroit to two actual goals in a 3-2 shootout loss. He was not a part of the embarrassing 5-1 loss in Montreal or the horrific defensive meltdown against Tampa Bay on Monday. Just sayin’...

The Panthers will have a 10:30 AM practice on Wednesday at the Panthers IceDen (3299 Sportsplex Dr, Coral Springs, FL 33065). Los Gatos will face the 8-4 Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night at the BB&T Center.
