DALLAS -- Getting ready to depart chilly Dallas with chilly Philadelphia the destination. Going to take a few well deserved days away from the Panthers; we both can use the break. I'm sure they're sick of me already. Tonight's game in St. Louis will be the first I've missed (exhibitions included) all season but I'll be watching from the Steel City. I'll still be updating here throughout the weekend. Who knows, might even have some World Series updates here mixed in with your hockey news.
