GameDay CaterThread: Florida Panthers at Montreal Canadiens

What a difference a day makes! After coming off the mat last night in Toronto, the Florida Panthers have an opportunity to move back into the final wild card spot when they visit the Montreal Canadiens tonight at Bell Centre. The Panthers ended an ugly four-game losing streak with a miraculous 3-2 overtime win over the Maple Leafs to pull within a point of the Pittsburgh Penguins, who will host the equally desperate Nashville Predators tonight. The Canadiens will be looking to get one against the Cats to close the season series, which Florida has dominated thus far. Montreal won two in a row before dropping a 3-2 decision in Philadelphia on Tuesday.
