Panthers at Maple Leafs - Live Game Thread

17-18-7 (41 Points) 14-19-9 (37 Points)

Welcome to this evening's Open Thread


Pension Plan Puppets * Panthers @ Maple Leafs GameDay Central * NHL Preview

Heading right into this this one, courtesy of another 7pm start (ever mention my dislike of those? Got an hour?)...

We always steer you toward the SB Nation sistership representing the opposing team, and tonight is no exception: don't pass up an opportunity to check out Pension Plan Puppets, one of the best in all of hockey, and not only due to their impeccable manners and Victorian grace. PPP management also assures me they are most definitely not holding forward Chad Kilger against his wishes. The search goes on.

Bryan McCabe is always fun to watch against a local media and fanbase which ran him out of the province on less than a mule, but the real spectacle could be Colton Orr and Steve MacIntyre in a staring contest.

It's the Americans taking on Canada as the World Junior Championship wraps tonight, and we'll stay on top of that as well: the United States' (and Florida prospect) A.J. Jenks is leaning on us.

Thanks as always for dropping in. Go Cats.
