LIVE! From Hollywood, it's Late Night with the Cats

HollywoodLOS ANGELES -- Good evening night owls, welcome to another edition of LIVE! On Frozen Pond. Tonight the Panthers take on the homestanding Kings in front of what should be an electric crowd. Honestly, there may be 100 people in the building right now for the warm-up skate.

And the televisions outnumber the media members in the press box, which is good for G because I get to watch the Brownies take down (I hope) the Broncos.

Don't fumble!

Anyway, no new updates from the previous post. Rostislav Olesz is out with the shoulder, Noah Welch is out with the scratch.

Will be back in a little bit, hope to get Goldie up here to do a little play-by-blog.

Browns up 13. Got my fingers crossed.

-- As beat writer for the Panthers, I know a little something about bad crowds. This one has a chance to be one of the worst I have ever seen.

GAME ON -- GAME ON --

-- We've kicked this thing off here at the Forum, Browns' lead down to 3....

--Browns' D stinks...we have our first penalty, Frolov for tripping midway through the first...let's see if this FLA power play is any better than it's been...

-- Panthers get a big chance although Frolik didn't get anything on his shot...Kings almost get a short-handed goal but TVo made a nice save.,.

KINGS SCORE, TAKE A 1-0 LEAD IN WHAT IS A SNOOZEFEST....BRIAN BOYLE GETS HIS FIRST OF THE SEASON...I'M WATCHING FOOTBALL....

-- Panthers have a whopping three shots on goal with just over two minutes left...no shots since the power play...

-- ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZz

--Welcome back Bryan McCabe; two minutes for tripping at 17:49....LAK on the PP....

MAKE IT 2-0 KINGS....TOM PREISSING GETS HIS SECOND OF THE SEASON, THIS ONE COMING WITH 1:22 LEFT IN THE FIRST...

-- Is it effort, or a complete lack of talent? This is pathetic hockey right here kids....

-- Panthers are going into the room with three shots....if you like watching guys skate around in circles, this game is for you....Looks like Soup Campbell trying to get something going in the corner...it's broken up...

END OF 1 IN LOS ANGELES, IT'S LAKERS 2, HEAT 0

After another uneventful period, Florida still trail 2-0...three more shots for the visitors from Florida!

This is brutal, brutal, brutal hockey.

I will check and see if anyone -- aside from Campbell, Ballard, Vokoun and Weiss -- have a pulse after this one.

If Florida plays like this in the third, changes have to be made. Tonight. JM needs to wake some of his peers up and see if he can do something. If not, dial up the waiver wire.

Pathetic.

ANTHONY STEWART MAKES IT 2-1 ON FLORIDA'S SEVENTH SHOT OF THE NIGHT...MERRY CHRISTMAS STEWIE...THAT ONE WAS THROWN UP FROM 40 FEET AWAY, CLIPPED LABARBERA'S SKATE AND IN....COMES JUST 2:09 INTO THE THIRD....

--I'm going back to work, been fun chatting it up. It's 3-1 Kings and I got a ton of work to do.

Will check in tomorrow from OlliWood -- otherwise known as Phoenix.
