Florida Panthers Keep Rolling

Two guys Im glad we never see again on the Cats (look for the two names, one a Sabre, one a Cat, for the prize)



PB1300s OFFICIAL GAME DAY PREVIEW
After a successful short, two game road trip, the Panthers return home to their lair to take on the Buffalo Sabres. The Panthers, with eight points in their last five games, look to use their modern light Sabres against a weapon that was used back in the 18th century, which seems to be the last time the Panthers made the playoffs. For whoever attends the game, please use your Jedi mind tricks to get Miller to Yo'mama his post while we are on the PP:




GO CATS GO!

***PS. LETS MAKE IT A SOUTH FLORIDA SWEEP OF BUFFALO THIS WEEK***

an out of character vanek scores a gordie howe hat trick. the cats once again avoid a shutout late when stewie tackles ryan miller in the end zone for a safety. 5-2, sabres.

(OT - man, we are a superstitious bunch aren't we )

I'm going pointlessly optimistic and saying Panthers 3-2.

Don't know why - I think the Sabres will win. Why? Because every time this team gets my hopes up, they let me down.

Could someone post the projected lines? Curious to see who's Shawn Matthias playing with. He's on the fourth line right?

The last several games Matthias has been paired with Stewart and Tarnasky. Actually, that was before McArdle came up, don't know if anything's changed since then or not.

after having played well against good teams the past few games, the old panthers team would lose tonight.

If this team has really turned things around, they'll win tonight.

I don't care about injuries, tonight is a must win match. Time to see if this team can get my playoffs hopes back.

Looking forward to the game tonight.

Anyone know if anyones coming back from injury? Or will it likely be the same roster as last game?

I really wanna see how McArdle looks and watch some more of Matthias.

Not to mention, this is one of those game where we can help ourselves by beating a team that is in competition with us for one of the lower playoff spots. Traditionally, the Panthers don't do well in those situations.

Cats fall behind 2-0, Vokoun takes over (he shoulda started, everyone then will wisely opine), Bouw gets another goal by being the closest Panther to a Buffalo own goal (thus enhancing his "Bouwmeester assist" legend with a "Bouwmeester goal"), we go into SO, Panthers win with a Ville the fire truck 5-hole.
