She's a Pool Waitress, Russ: Panthers @ Islanders ... Back to Rochester ... David Booth Skating

Brinkley UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- The Panthers are finally finishing up this road trip, one that took us from Ohio to New York back to Pittsburgh and to New York again.

Thanks, NHL schedule makers. Good planning.

Anywho, we're all ready to come home -- if not for a few days.

Mark down Dominic Moore and Jordan Leopold in tonight's lineup. They're playing.

That's good news for the Panthers, but bad news for two Panthers.

Jason Garrison, called up this morning as a precaution for Leopold, was sent back to Rochester. Mike Duco is headed back as well.

(*) More good news for the Panthers on the injury front as Gregory Campbell and David Booth have been skating.

Campbell could be back in the lineup Wednesday, but DeBoer says he hasn't taken any contact. He Andygirls would probably have to have a few hard skates with the team before, so you might just have to wait until Friday. But we'll see.

Booth, out since Oct. 24 thanks to the blindside open-ice hit delivered by Philly's Mike Richards, is back to doing light workouts and light skating. DeBoer stressed the 'light' on the skating part. Says he's been doing that for a few days. And that's a step in the right direction for Booth. So there's some good news for ya.
