GameDay Caterwaul: Florida Panthers vs Toronto Maple Leafs

Cats look to get back on winning track

The Florida Panthers (36-28-7) will be looking to leapfrog the Pittsburgh Penguins again when they face the Toronto Maple Leafs (42-19-9) tonight at FLA Live Arena to open a difficult two-game homestand. While Florida faltered Tuesday in Philadelphia, the Penguins scored an impressive 5-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche in Denver to regain the second wild card. The Maple Leafs have had troubling adjusting to all the changes made at the trade deadline and were soundly beaten 7-2 by the New York islanders in their last outing.
