Anthony Stewart is back in the lineup.
Will update lines when they become available.
CPR Line getting the start tonight with Skrastins and Bouwmeester.
-- OK, end of one here in Dallas. Panthers didn't look all that crisp nor all that interested. Do they want to make the playoffs? I can't tell.
Florida gets its second shot of the night with 8:56 left in the period and it's courtesy of Nathan Horton. Craig Anderson has been forced to make some big saves, and the one he missed, well, I don't see anyone stopping that shot.
Watch SportsCenter tonight and you'll see the Mike Ribeiro goal in which he shoots a backhander between his legs top shelf to make it 1-0.
And that's where we stand.
Stats: Dallas shots 16-4; Dallas PP 0-1; FLA PP 0-0; Cool retro Minnesota North Stars cap in concourse: $9.99.
--Montreal 3-2 over Buffalo end of the second...
AND JUST LIKE THAT THE STARS MAKE IT 2-1...MATT NISKANEN WITH THE GOAL FROM RIBEIRO...
-- STEPHEN WEISS TIES IT WITH A NICE DRIVE-AND-SHOOT WITH 59.5 SECONDS LEFT IN THE SECOND...I'M NOT GOING TO SIT HERE AND LET YOU BAD MOUTH THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! GENTLEMEN! PANTHERS-DALLAS TIED 2-2 LATE IN
-- AND NATHAN HORTON BANGS IN A LOOSE PUCK AND THE PANTHERS TAKE THE LEAD. YOU MESSED UP FLOUNDER; YOU TRUSTED US! PANTHERS GO INTO THE THIRD LEADING 3-2. HORTON'S GOAL COMES WITH 6.2 SECONDS LEFT
-- Key stats: Panthers outshoot Stars 15-11 in the third, get a lot of quality chances and looks. PP: Florida goes 1-for-2 and look much, much better. Diet Dr. Pepper is flowing smoothly.
KAMIL KREPS DRIVES AND IN AND SCORES...HOW'S IT FEEL TO BE AN INDEPENDENT SCHOENSTEIN? HOW'S IT FEEL TO BE A [real jerk] NIEDERMAYER? WHAT DID HE SAY? PANTHERS LEAD 4-2 JUST 58 SECONDS INTO THE THIRD...
-- On deadline, so lets keep this quick. Gregory Campbell gets charged by Steve Ott, Bryan McCabe comes to defense; Ott gets 5 minutes, McCabe 2. Dallas scores on the 4-on-4, but Jay Bouwmeester makes it 5-3 on the power play.
Montreal loses in shootout, so if Panthers hold on, they are a point out of eighth.
Drive careful everyone...
