Buffalo Hot Wings in Town

WingchicaNothing beats a plate of good, authentic Buffalo-style chicken wings, except for maybe a good hockey game.

Those of you watching tonight's game from somewhere other than the Ikea Overflow Parking Arena in Sunrise can get the best of both worlds.

If this was my call, I'd head over to Rickey's in Pines or Hollywood to watch the game; or Uncle Al's in The Coop; or Gabriel's Gate in Buffalo.

Should be a fun one tonight. These two usually give a good show, and I don't think the Panthers are buying the 'woe-is-us' bologna coming out of Buffalo. Sure they're struggling right now, but there's still some fire on this team. It just hasn't come out yet.

Reggie_2 -- After sucking down a few dozen wings, you may be in the mood to go light tomorrow. Well, pal, swing on over to McDonald's and try the side salad on the dollar menu. I didn't even know they offered a salad for a dollar, did you? Anyway, had one today, completely worth the buck-six. Lots of greens, some spinach, carrots, grape tomatoes and dressing from Reggie Dunlap himself. Yes, all for $1.06 (more in Canada, but why?)

-- Line of the day comes from Jacques Martin. Asked him about Branislav Mezei mixing it up Wednesday in defense of his teammates. JM brought up that Mezei has fought in the past, and I forgot he threw down with Buffalo's Nathan Paetsch last year. Anyway, JM says it was good to see Mezei show some aggression.

"He has a long fuse, maybe a little too long,'' JM said. "But when he gets mad, he's a bull. He's got tremendous strength.''

-- One thing I just thought of. Jassen Cullimore is now the second member of the Panthers organization to get a Stanley Cup ring from the 2004 Lightning. The other: FSN producer Mitch Rubenstein.

Mnf -- Speaking of Mitch, those of you catching the game at home need to check out Goldie's suit. It's the same color gold as those old ABC Sports/Monday Night Football coats.

-- Team is honoring Olli for his most recent accomplishments. Heard the ceremony during the dry-run (seriously!). Olli and his family is getting the VIP treatment at Walt Disney World, complete with luxury hotel and a personal tour guide all compliments of the Panthers.  Also gets framed lineup card from game when he played in 301st consecutive goal to set franchise record. Record setting pucks are also in the frame.

-- Are you ready for some football?!

-- Scratched tonight: Anthony Stewart.

-- Just spoke to Rostislav Olesz, says all is well. Has a cast on his right wrist, says that may come off next week. He already is chomping at the bit, ready to play. Once the drugs wore off, though. "I slept until 3 today,'' he said with a grin. "Those pills are powerful.'' Relax folks; he was prescribed the medicine.

-- Sabres stay in room for Jokinen tribute.
