GameDay Caterwaul: Florida Panthers at Ottawa Senators

Cats need to start off road trip with a bang

The Florida Panthers (36-30-7) open a pivotal four-game road trip tonight when they visit the Ottawa Senators (35-33-5) at Canadian Tire Centre. After finally pulling into a wild card spot, the Panthers have lost three straight and now trail the Pittsburgh Penguins by three points after the results of Saturday’s games that saw the Cats lose 4-3 to the New York Rangers and Penguins beat the Washington Capitals by the same score. While still mathematically in the hunt, the Senators would need a miracle of epic proportions to make the postseason. Ottawa was beaten 5-3 by the New Jersey Devils in its last outing.
