Thursday Caterwaul: Florida Panthers GameDay Open Forum

Jovo skates in practice, Rheault returns, and Clemmer with the start?

Going with the "no-frills" variety of 'waul today, as I'm about two hours behind my original schedule for any number of reasons. It's all about me, of course, though if you must talk hockey this afternoon, the Cats are in Boston to face the 17-4-3 Broons this evening. Good news? The B's lost their last game. Not so good news? They are 9-2-1 over the past 12, including a 4-1 stomping of the Panthers in Sunrise on February 24. Swell things ahead. If it makes you feel any better, Nathan Horton has no points and a minus-three over his last four games, so there's that.

Two watch parties tonight: the Panthers have an "official" event scheduled at Duffy's Sports Grill in Plantation, while the Booster Club will be hosting their own action - with a charitable theme - at Saveology IcePlex in Coral Springs:
