Opening Day for Baseball, Closing Week for Cats ... Cory Stillman Hurt ... Great Pic from Disney

Openingday2The Panthers went through a long practice this morning in Coral Springs as Pete DeBoer kept them out there for about 80 minutes.

Byron Bitz (elbow) came out at the end and worked on some things. Gregory Campbell (broken foot) did not skate as far as I could tell.

Victor Oreskovich (lower body) was back and will play tomorrow against the Senators.

The big news today is that Cory Stillman injured his back Saturday against the Rangers and is out for the time being. According to GM Randy Sexton, Steve MacIntyre will come up as will rookie Evgeny Dadonov.

Looking forward to seeing Dadonov make his NHL debut tomorrow. Had a pretty solid training camp and is playing very well for the Amerks. Sexton said he definitely has earned a shot to come up and try and make a name for himself in whatever time he gets.

-- Tomas Vokoun to start tomorrow against the Sens.

-- Daniel Alfredsson plays in his 1,000th NHL game for the Sens tomorrow, and Bryan Murray tells Bruce Garrioch that he thinks Alfredsson has a few more good years left in the tank.

-- Today may have been the final practice of the season at Incredible Ice. The Panthers will work out at The Billboard on Wednesday as they take their team picture (that should be a keeper) and are expected to take Friday off. So that means they have just one practice day left and that will be in Sunrise.

Going to miss that drive along the Sawgrass.

-- Got this link from my sister Rachel today and it's pretty cool. If you are a fan of Disney World and the space shuttle, you going to dig this. Photographer Kent Phillips woke up early and got an amazing shot of Discovery soaring over Cinderella's Castle. Enjoy.
