News And Notes
Quote:
''It's going to be tough, no doubt about it,'' center Stephen Weiss said. ``We're playing a lot of good teams and it's going to determine which way we go -- up or down. We knew that this was going to be the toughest time of the year, no matter if you're playing top teams or teams at the bottom.

``It's a going to be a battle every night to get wins, but we're ready for it.''

The Panthers appear ready, having won four of their past five games and being bolstered by the returns Thursday of winger David Booth and goaltender Tomas Vokoun from the flu.
Sun-Sentinel: Zednik play jumps out in Panthers' win
Miami Herald: Florida Panthers' playoff dreams rest on nightmare stretch of games
George Richards' Blog, Your Source For Reliable, Early Panthers Info!


Red Hot Cat Of The Night Stephen Weiss, with 8 points in his last 5 games, now leads the team in points, assists, and plus/minus.


Primary Target
Money, the root of all evil and also required to attend Panthers games, usually. In any case, we all need it, we all want it, and frankly there isn't enough of it right now. It has hit the Panthers again, causing a delay in the Ice & Dice event, maybe even a cancellation. The real question tonight though is, who puts their money where there mouth is? Hey, that's the title of the poll of this GDT!



Last Game VS. Capitals (that was televised)*

LET'S GO PANTHERS!!!!!!!!!!

Excellent GDT thread, as usual, and thank you. A tremendous amount of work must go into the preparing of them; know that we appreciate it.

That said, Panthers 2-0 in a highly entertaining game. Should be fun to watch Ovechkin. Win or lose--and I hope we win--it's going to be a blast. Wouldn't it be great if we could beat them again?

Rooting for the Cats as always, but Washington is a very tough place to play and they're on a hot streak. Florida loses a close one 4-3 IMO..

Washington has a pretty weak record on the road for such a highly ranked team. So, needless to say their home record is awesome at 21-4-1.

It'll take everything to beat them at home and therefore I think we come up short tonight.

Obviously I care about the result... but this is a very good home team, we beat them already there and were not gonna go the rest of the season without a loss... I just want a good effort, not saying they cant win

Should be a great game, they need to come out blazing and take one in their own building again.

Kind of wary about this game. the defense has seemed loose lately... no way we can afford semin, backstrom or ovechkin splitting them tonight, hope the gap control is tight and everyone is on their game. Hopefully no overzealous plays that would get them caught in a jam.


Go Panthers Go

Meant in the Caps building, we were the first team to beat them at home, which is what I was referring to. Should've been more clear.
