Daily Pucking Grind. TGIF. March 18th.

Today’s music selection is Run by Snow Patrol.  Was the first song by these guys that I ever heard.  One of my favourite bands.

For a change the Florida Panthers won a game by more than one goal.  Matter of fact their last 11 wins dating back to January 11th were all by one goal.  A 4-0 shutout win over the Toronto Maple Leafs with Scott Clemmensen getting his first shutout of the season could have shut the door on any chances the Leafs had at making the post season.  The big story in Toronto is certainly going to be Ron Wilson’s decision to start J.S. Giguere over rookie sensation James Reimer. Post game wrap up later today.
