Panthers Blog: Litter Box Cats

Holy god, last night sucked so much.

With the way the Atlantic standings are now, the Red Wings are very much walking a thin line of going off the rails. An anemic offense, a lackluster blue line, and a really good goaltender. The good news is that it's a new day, and a new chance to redeem ourselves as a team. Funny how I say "ourselves" when we all here have nothing to do with it. Ah well, let's just pretend.

The Panthers are a good team. They lead the Atlantic, and have been red-hot for quite some time. With impressive players like Aaron Ekblad, and Aleksander Barkov, the Red Wings will no doubt have their hands full in this tilt. I have our lines slated in the same way that they looked last night, because I'm not sure if coaching will change anything. The only big change we might see is Riley Sheahan coming back into the lineup. That's unknown as of now, but we will keep you posted.

Let's just score more than one goal tonight. I think that's a good idea.
