Monday's Exhibition Doubleheader: Florida Panthers Sweep Nashville Predators; G Tim Thomas Signs PTO

Preseason Cats take both games over Preds, 6-3 & 3-2 (OT); Thomas to join Panthers Tuesday

We'll skip the usual "it's been a long offseason" stuff and simply echo the sentiment of so many fans: it's great to be back. Got ourselves a double-shot of games on today's slate from the BB&T, but with no television coverage - and to my knowledge at this point no radio feeds as well - the only way to catch any action is to be there live. For the same reasons, there will be no formal Game Thread(s) this evening, but this post will remain open all day for discussion, links, and the typical Caterwaulish fare, so do chime in if you get a moment.

Nashville has released their split lineups for the games, but as of 10 a.m. Florida had yet to publicly do the same.

Have a terrific Monday, all :)

UPDATE (and yes, the deal is complete):

FLA just working thru final insurance issues and if all goes as expected today, Tim Thomas will be back on the ice with the Panthers.
