The Boys Are Thirsty In Atlanta: Thrashers @ Florida Panthers ... LIVE! Later ... Same Lineup ... Scoreboard, Standings

Thrashboard Today's post is a little late because I had some errands to run. Then I started watching Superbad. So, there you go.

Nice, easy practice at the Billboard today, and like I've said before, not much going on. Winning means no changes, no controversy, not much news.

Pete DeBoer talked today about how the coaching staff doesn't need to pull out any rah-rah speeches at this time of year, and that the room kind of takes care of itself.

Asked if he's leaning on the veteran guys anymore than usual, and he said not really. He did stress that the ''guys who have been here'' really bring an even keel to the room. Good not to get too high, nor too low.

Someone asked how big the win in Philadelphia was, and well, you can guess what DeBo had to say about that. It may have only saved the season, that's all.

Didn't speak to too many players today because, well, there weren't many of them around. Did talk to Cory Stillman about his favorite Stanley Cup memory, but you'll have to wait until Sunday for that. Was pretty good.

-- Since tonight's game isn't on local tv (on on Center Ice and various streaming internet channels) I'll be going LIVE! from the Billboard tonight.

-- Thursday's Games (and how they affected the Panthers): Florida got a big jolt when Carolina scored twice within 30 seconds to beat the Rangers. Florida got no help from their friends on the Island and Montreal rolled the Isles.

-- Friday's Games (and who the Panthers would be rooting for if they weren't so busy watching last night's ER finale)

Sabres @ Capitals, 7: Buffalo is behind the Panthers, and Florida would like to keep it that way.
