News And Notes
Quote:
"That's Chumbawamba right there,'' Dineen said, referencing the British band from the 1990s. "You get knocked down and get right back up. We're beat up. We have a lot of bodies out, people at home watching. Kopecky wanted to get right back in the fight.''

Primary Target

Martin Brodeur, the automatic future hall of famer, returned from injury last game against the Hurricanes. Just in case anyone forgot that he's still making history, he was credited with a goal in that game, giving him 3 all time, most ever for a goaltender. The Panthers managed to chase him from a game in the playoffs last year, something unheard of in his career. The challenge will be likely must tougher this time around with the current Panthers team.


Red Hot Cat Of The Night

Tomas Kopecky, who has 3 points in his last 3 games, is tied for the team lead in goals with 12.
