To put it bluntly, the last time the Florida Panthers met the Tampa Bay Lightning on the ice, the Cats totally kicked their ass. The best part? The game was in Tampa, where the Panthers set a team record for most goals scored on the road. Were sure Brad Richards, Vincent Lecavalier, and the rest of the keepers of Lord Stanley will be shooting for revenge tonight at the BankAtlantic Center (1 Panther Pkwy., Sunrise). But now for the bad news: Even if the skating felines can steal the thunder from the Lightning once again, there is still little hope of the Cats making the playoffs. But we dont care; were happy to just watch Olli Jokinen -- the only Panther in the NHLs Top 20 leading scorers -- smack his puck into the goal. The battle on the ice begins at 7:00. Tickets range from $20 to $250. Call 954-835-PUCK, or visit www.flpanthers.com.
