GameDay Caterwaul: Florida Panthers at New Jersey Devils

Cats open tough two-game road trip in Newark

The Florida Panthers (14-13-4) will face the much-improved New Jersey Devils (21-7-2) for the first time this season tonight in Newark, NJ. Injury-riddled Florida is coming off a 4-2 defeatto Pittsburgh that saw them play well at 5-on-5, but lose the game thanks another poor performance on special teams. While the Devils have dropped four (0-3-1) in a row, they are still have a four-point lead on the Penguins and Carolina for first place in the Metropolitan Division. Last year’s firewagon versus this year’s model. Should be interesting.
