GameDay Caterwaul: Florida Panthers at Edmonton Oilers

Cats look to shake the blues in Canada’s Festival City

The maddeningly inconsistent Florida Panthers (10-8-3) will kick off a five-game road trip against Western Conference foes when they face the Edmonton Oilers (11-10-0) tonight at Rogers Place. Although both teams have spent most of the season spinning their respective wheels, they come into the game with different degrees of mojo. Florida blew a 4-1 third period lead and ended up losing 5-4 in overtime to the St. Louis Blues on home ice on Saturday. Meanwhile, the OIlers rallied from three down with four third periods goals to defeat the New York Rangers 4-3 at Madison Square Garden. This will be final meeting of the regular season between the two far-flung clubs. Edmonton scored a 4-2 win over Cats in Sunrise back on November 12.
