Been tied up with work the past couple days, so going to keep it short…

What can you say about that marathon of a Game 1?


The high octane, back and forth action with two stellar goaltending performances locked in a seemingly endless battle was as good as it gets. It had the big time drama that close games have, complete with a heart-stopping recalled goal in OT…

The best part? It ended with a Florida victory.

There’s a mountain of interesting stats from Game 1 that you should check out if you haven’t had a chance yet. Here are a couple that are pretty wild to me.

I would expect some fatigue on both sides of the ice tonight. After all, it’s not often you play a little over two games in a single night just a mere day ago.

I also expect another close game. Both of these teams are far more similar to one another than I thought. The difference (edge) for the Cats could come down to staying out of the box — a recurring theme all postseason with this group. Carolina scored both of their goals on Thursday night while on the man advantage.

Have to be smarter out there, guys.

Let’s get it done…GO PANTHERS!
