Did you know:
-- Coming into Thursday, the Panthers have been outscored in the first, second and third periods as well as overtime. Most glaring? The first: 35-23. Others: 2nd (33-30), 3rd (37-31), OT (1-0 -- at Buffalo).
-- The Panthers are averaging 2.5 goals a game, Buffalo 3.9; yet Florida is outshooting the Sabres by a large margin. Florida has 1,027 shots in 34 games (31.1 per) and Buffalo has thrown up 872 (29.1). In fact, the Sabres are being outshot this season 940-872.
-- I'll be joining Randy and Steve in the WQAM booth during the first intermission tonight.
