Hello, Senator: Ottawa Senators @ Florida Panthers ... Nothing New to See Here ... Scoreboard Watch, Standings

Senssign2 Hello hockey fans and thanks for being patient. I haven't posted here today because I was in a rush to leave the billboard so I could watch some exciting Grapefruit League baseball over at Fort Lauderdale Stadium.

Good times, although I left early.

Orioles Had to beat the traffic out of there, you know.

Was at the skate this morning, and if you weren't, well, you didn't miss anything.

Save for Richard Zednik being back in the lineup after missing Saturday with some sort of illness, everything remains the same.

Big game tonight against the Senators, a team that would love to play spoiler and hurt Florida's playoff chances. This is another must-win for the Panthers, who remain one point out of eighth and four out of seventh. It's still close, but the Panthers have to close the deal.

-- Monday's Game (and how they affected the Panthers): The Rangers beating the Devils was not good for the Panthers. They did not like that one bit. Now, watching Sean Avery get tossed around like a rag doll? I'm sure a lot of people liked seeing that.

-- Tuesday's Games (and who the Panthers would be rooting for if they weren't so busy with their fantasy baseball draft)

Blackhawks @ Canadiens, 7 (Versus): Panthers really need a Chicago win. Go Cubs.
