So all eyes in SoCal can be aimed squarely at tonight's hockey game between one of the best teams in the east and one of the best in the west.
Or Florida versus Los Angeles.
Panthers spent the first half of their practice at Staples Center in darkness, a power surge knocking out a good chunk of the power in the arena. It was kind of cool, though, and made the skate feel like a Saturday morning practice at a youth rink in Waterloo instead of at a major league facility.
Not a lot going on, Pete DeBoer saying Rostislav Olesz is doubtful to play because of his shoulder. Also, Noah Welch is tonight's healthy scratch. Team worked a lot on the power play today once the lights flickered back on, Jay Bo and Bryan McCabe running the point, Horton-Weiss-Booth the forwards.
Weiss says the PP boys want at least two tonight.
We'll see. If the lights are on, that is.
