The Panthers kick off a vital 5-game road trip tonight in Boston. The Panthers and B's just played days ago, so I'll keep this preview brief. The standings haven't changed much since the Cats' last game. They are still tied with Buffalo, and both teams are still just 1 point above the Carolina Tropical Storms.
Boston is returning home after a 5-game roadie of their own, and will certainly be looking to get back to their winning ways. They went 1-1-3 on their road trip. The Bruins have enjoyed giant success in their own barn, posting a 19-4-4 home record. It will take another solid, 60 minute, team effort for the Panthers to get out of Beantown with 2 points.
Tomas Vokoun sat Monday's practice out with flu symptoms. Hopefully he will be cured before the puck drops tonight, otherwise it'll be Craig Anderson 'tween the pipes. Andy hasn't played since February 3rd. Puck drops at 7:00.
UPDATE (2:39); Craig Anderson gets the start tonight.
