Florida Panthers Welcome Back Evgeny Dadonov ... Cats Play host to 'Rested' Flyers on Sunday

DadsWith Scottie Upshall out “a little while,'' as Dineen put it, Evgeny Dadonov was recalled from Florida's AHL affiliate in San Antonio on Saturday and is expected to be in the lineup Sunday against the Flyers.

Dadonov, Florida's lone representative at All-Star Weekend last year, had a poor training camp and was sent to the minors just a week into the season.

Dadonov has three goals and an assist in nine games for the Rampage.

“Dads has played well at times in San Antonio,'' Dineen said. “We're expecting a lot out of him. He was consistently inconsistent [during training camp]. We need more consistency out of him.''

SUNDAY: FLYERS AT PANTHERS

When, Where: 5 p.m.; BankAtlantic Center, Sunrise

TV/Radio: FSN; 560-WQAM

The series: First meeting this season; Flyers lead 40-26-7

The game: Both teams are 8-4-3, with the Panthers winning two straight and going 4-1-3 in their past eight games.

Florida is off to its best start since 1996. “It's great to see the community behind us,'' said former Flyers winger Kris Versteeg. “They haven't had much to cheer about.''

The Flyers are coming off a 2-1 loss at Tampa on Wednesday and have spent the past few days on Florida's west coast on a 'team bonding' trip.

“We like them coming down here and supporting our economy, enjoying themselves,'' Dineen said.

finally they get smart!!! thank god they didn't give Repik another chance, his days are over he lost his shot.

AS FOR THE MIAMI MARLINS

WHAT UGLY UNIFORMS BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA LOOKS LIKE A 3RD GRADER DESIGNED IT.

hey george did mikeal skate with the team today? when is his projected return? and do you think he will return or will he be like a bitz??

Dadonov might fare better in the new offensive scheme. Upshall has the ability to hit; Dadonov does not; however, Dadonov, as we know, has an upside to his offensive talent. Hope we see some of that later this afternoon! Go Cats -- lose, and Ill disown you again!
