Happy Boxing Day ... Tampa Bay Lightning at Florida Panthers ... Jassen Cullimore Questionable ... Nick Tarnasky In, Anthony Stewart Out ...

RockyComing to you from scenic One Herald Plaza in beautiful Miami, Florida, where the breezes are warm and the traffic ain't too bad.

Today, anyway.

The Panthers are back in action Friday, kicking off a home-and-home series with the cross-state rival Lightning. Tampa Bay has only won two games this month, but it beat the struggling Penguins on Tuesday with a rare shutout. Don't want to get too far ahead of things, but the Bolts are playing better. They still can't score (who would have thought at the beginning of the season that Tampa's problems would be offensive and not on the defensive end? Not this guy.)

News out of practice today is that Jassen Cullimore worked out in the morning skate, although Pete DeBoer says it's a gametime decision whether or not he plays. Says Cullimore is going to take the afternoon to find out if the wrist/hand will settle down a bit. If he doesn't go, Noah Welch is in for a second straight game and third in the past four.

The flip-flop at forward continues, tonight Nick Tarnasky goes against his former mates with Anthony Stewart sitting this one out.

Will have more later from the Big Billboard in Sunrise...

Enjoy the World Juniors, kids....
