Wednesday Caterwaul: Florida Panthers Open Forum

Cats continue prepping for pair with the Bolts

The Florida Panthers will practice today as they continue preparations for Thursday night’s homie against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Paul Maurice has stated he’ll be playing something closely resembling his opening night roster. Florida will be looking to end its three-game preseason losing streak. The two teams will close their respective exhibitions slates on Saturday in Tampa.

It doesn’t look like the Panthers made any further personnel moves after yesterday’s practice, so I believe that the training camp stands at 30.
