Back at The Billboard: Jeff Taffe Recalled ... Talking with Nathan Horton

Taffe Hey everyone, guess who's back with the Panthers?

Yes, me.

And Jeff Taffe, too.

With Dominic Moore out again tonight after the nasal surgery, the Panthers recalled Taffe from Rochester. Taffe took a puck to the left eye in the Dallas game and he hasn't skated until today.

The eye is still yuck looking, but he says his vision is fine. He says he was hanging out in Rochester when he got the call. A little surprising, I would think, since he hadn't skated. He was good natured about it though. ''I still haven't figured it out,'' he said.

Pete DeBoer says Moore was going to the doc today and would be back at The Billboard to try and skate this afternoon. It's possible he plays Friday against the Capitals.

-- Spoke to Nathan Horton today about his play of late. He seems to be having a lot of fun out there, and his stats are showing it. He's playing very well. He only has one goal during the past three games (an empty netter against the Blues on Saturday) but he has six assists during that span. That line of Horton with Steven Reinprecht and Cory Stillman is creating a ton of chances.

Will have more from Horton and DeBoer later on.
