Thursday Caterwaul: Florida Panthers Open Forum

"To everyone in Canada outside of B.C. – you’re welcome"

A somewhat gaudy post from the Los Angeles Kings' official Twitter feed (Globe and Mail/Shoalts)

Wednesday's playoff action, and brother was it good stuff:

  • (5) PHI over (4) PIT, 4-3 (OT): four unanswered goals by stormin' Flyers made for a sparkling playoff opener
  • (4) NSN over (5) DET, 3-2 (REG): ever heard of the Preds' Gabriel Bourque (2G)? Neither had the Wings before last night
  • (8) LA over (1) VAN, 4-2: two pucks over the glass, a boarding major, an unsportsmanlike, and a game misconduct for undisciplined Nucks

Ahead this evening:

  • (8) Ottawa at (1) NY Rangers, 7 p.m. (NHLN, MSG)
  • (7) Washington at (2) Boston, 7:30 (NBC-SN, CSN-MA, NESN)
  • (7) San Jose at (2) St. Louis, 7:30 (CNBC, CSN-CA, FS-MW)
  • (6) Chicago at (3) Phoenix, 10:00 (NBC-SN, CSN-CH, FS-A+)/

We'll do another thread tonight. Full SB Nation NHL playoff team coverage here. One more day, folks...

Tonight's BIG game in the East?
