Hey, at least I'm used to it.
As far as hockey goes, not much going on in Pantherland. Team should be leaving for Tampa any time now, taking on the Lightning tomorrow night.
Stephen Weiss and Gregory Campbell were back today, Kamil Kreps skated before practice and will be on the trip. Could play sometime in the next three games. Noah Welch back on defense, replaced on a forward line by Wade Belak. Pete DeBoer says it was just a practice thing, wanted eight D today.
-- On being complacent playing Tampa, a team the Panthers beat 4-0: "People in glass houses don't throw stones,'' DeBoer said. "Where we are right now, we can't take anyone lightly. That conversation hasn't come up. If we bring our A game, we have shown we can compete with anyone. We also know, if we don't show up, we bring games like we did in L.A. and Atlanta. We can't afford to take anyone lightly.''
-- Campbell doesn't have an infection in his hand, but a deep bone bruise/possible fracture. He's going to keep playing with it.
-- David Booth took full advantage of Sunday's full sports day, leaving practice for the Dolphins-Raiders, then going down to Homestead to catch the end of the NASCAR race.
