Game #42 - at Florida Panthers

Pittsburgh Penguins (18-16-7, 43 pts) at Florida Panthers (15-20-9, 39 pts)

Another game with a team that could contend for the last few playoff spots.

The Panthers are trying to resurrect their season, and were doing a decent job of it, going 5-1-1 until a 0-1-2 West Coast trip. This is their first game back, though they last played on Sunday. Hopefully they'll be caught in the same letdown the Lightning were supposed to be caught in during the last game.

The Panthers power play has been struggling recently, going 2-32 in their last eight games. Their PK has been decent, however, and most of their games have been decided at even strength.

The Pens should certainly have some more room to skate tonight, that's for sure.

Let's hope they have some better success facing a goalie that's not quite as hot.

Panthers blog - it's really pretty sad - there's not much out there in Panther blog land. The main one I could find is On Frozen Pond, which has an article about the Panthers going up against Luongo in Vancouver.

Watch out for Olli Jokinen. He shoots like there's no tomorrow.

Let's Go Pens!

I agree, watch out for Olli. That dude may be Pen killer #2... just behind Might Mouse.

Worst game ever!

T-bound has to go. I know some of the goals were not his fault but he just can't keep pucks out of the net at key times.
