We are still sweating it out in the heat of the seemingly never-ending South Florida summer, but Panthers fans are breaking out the sweaters for tonights opening game of the 2006-2007 National Hockey League season. If you have forgotten, the Cats had a strong finish last season and were this close to making the playoffs. With many players returning including Olli Jokinen, Juraj Kolnick, Jozef Stumpel, and Jay Bouwmeester coach Jacques Martin has a sweet mix of reliable veterans and new blood to lead us on a slick ride to Lord Stanley. Heres to hoping the Boston Bruins go back to Beantown sporting some bruises (egos and otherwise). The puck drops at 7:30 p.m. at the BankAtlantic Center. Tickets range from $17 to $262.
