Today’s music video is Human Touch by Bruce Springsteen. Hoping that Michal Repik can add his goal scoring touch to the Panthers offence.
The last time these two teams met the Florida Panthers aimed 55 shots toward the Atlanta Thrashers net. Probably another 30 went way wide or in the direction of the 10th row. Needless to say, Florida had a 3-2 lead, but ended up losing 4-3 on home ice. A game they’d like to have back.
Tonight Atlanta will try to avoid it’s sixth loss in seven games as they’ve continued giving up too many shots, as they are finding out that goaltender Chris Mason is not the second coming of Patrick Roy as many thought during his previous performance against the cats. since beating Florida, Atlanta is 1-4-1 and has given up 23 goals.
The Panthers are coming off a 5-2 spanking handed to them by the high flying Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night. Not a good showing, but you know the deal with this team in back to back games. It’s never been good.
Michal Repik makes his season debut tonight. Plans are to have him on the fourth line, which to me is a complete waste of time and talent. We need to figure out if this kid can play in the NHL. Fourth line minutes won’t do it.
Jason Garrison is back in the lineup tonight after his crotch groin injury seems to be fully healed. Keaton Ellerby has been sent back to Rochester.
My question today is will Little Stevie still be wearing the head gear?
Here’s the TSN Gameday preview.
