Hurricanes lose, but match Cats at 29 points

Alexander Barabanov scored 1:42 into overtime to give the San Jose Sharks a 2-1 win against the Carolina Hurricanes at SAP Center. Despite the loss, the Bunch of Jerks matched the Florida Panthers league-leading 29 points and hit the mark in one less game. So, for now, the 13-2-3 Cats will have to be content with being the second-best team in the league. Oh well, maybe they can be the first club to hit 30 points come Wednesday.

While the Panthers are off today, their next opponent, the Philadelphia Flyers will face the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight at AMALIE Arena. The middling Flyers are 8-5-3 (4-4-2 in their last ten) and coming off a 5-2 loss to the Boston Bruins on Saturday. With the Lightning six points behind the Cats and holding a game in hand, a Flyers victory in regulation (a tiring one) would be most welcome.

In a bit of off-ice news, the Panthers announced that they have launched an all-new Kids Club with three membership options.
