Daily Pucking Grind. February 15th.

Today’s music selection is Love Lost by Temper Trap.  A great video.

An off day for the Florida Panthers on Monday as they held an optional skate in the morning.  Not a big turnout as fatigue, and bumps and bruises are starting to accumulate, so most of the gang used the day to convalesce.  A tough week ahead as the Philadelphia Flyers and Detroit Red Wings invade the Bank this week before the Cats head over to play Tampa Saturday night.
