RALEIGH -- Opening Night just a few short hours away. Panthers took to the ice this morning, the Whalercanes deciding to take the morning off. They have a game in Tampa Bay tomorrow night (going head-to-head with Game 2 of the RayLCS) and must have thought 30 minutes off the ice would help them out.
Nothing major going down, other than Pete DeBoer saying Tomas Vokoun will start both tonight and tomorrow at home against the Thrashers. Tonight's healthy scratches: Noah Welch, Anthony Stewart and Michael Frolik. So, yeah, Cory Murphy clears waivers one day, in the lineup another. PDeB says Murph deserves to play. So he has that going for him, which is nice.
