Predators at Panthers - Preseason Game One Open Thread

UPDATE - final score: 5-3 Nashville

Goals - NSH: Jonathon Blum, Jani Lajunen, Chris Mueller, Colin Wilson, Kyle Wilson. FLA: Dmitry Kulikov, Matt Cullen, Greg Rallo.

It's another no-frills-game-thread preseason at LBC, and welcome to it. We're all getting revved up for the real thing - still several weeks off - but for now we'll enjoy what the Exhibition Gods hath presented us: a doubleheader of hockey action. Key Florida prospects scheduled include Garrett Wilson, Scott Timmins, John McFarland, Alex Petrovic, Brian Foster.

There's no radio or television coverage of either game today, unless the BAC crew decide to generously allow for an in-house online feed, but that won't dampen the local enthusiasm as pucks begin to drop once again; a level of enthusiasm unseen round these parts in a very long time.

GR at On Frozen Pond will be providing his own annual preseason color commentary, so check him out as well.

This Thread will cover Game One; we'll have another ready to rock at 7pm for Game Two. For the newbs in our community, smartphone access for posting comments is easily accessible, so give it a whirl if you're riding the plastic in Sunrise.
