Saturday Caterwaul: Panthers recall McArdle, Repik shines in return to Rochester

The Amerks Express rolls on strong as ever, as the Panthers demoted winger Michal Repik - who promptly added three assists to his Rochester resume - while Kenndal McArdle arrives in Phoenix to theoretically bolster Florida's sagging offense in an effort to salvage what's been a hellacious (0-2) Western road trip, at least as far as the final scores have been concerned.

So the rearragement of deck chairs continues, but being in the depths of a massive rebuild, what more can be expected? Of course, the situation would be a bit more positive if the club's scorers were, well, scoring...I know, dead horse. Still, Florida isn't spinning wheels like they were a season ago, which makes one thoroughly pine for summer to arrive.
