Stealing some computer time before work... let's keep it simple. With Carolina's win last night, Florida is now 3 points behind the 'Canes and Montreal Canadians for the 8th and final playoff spot. The Panthers have lost 4 straight. Lose tonight, and forget it.
There was no excuse for the pathetic effort Tuesday night. That being said, there is no excuse to come out flat tonight. You know the standings. You know what you have to do. You're playing a team that is just playing out the schedule. Lose tonight, and you can start making tee times.
Simple as that. Puck drops at 7:30.
