Game 76 Open Thread: It's Made With Bits of Real Panther

Game thread, bullet style:

  • The Jackets host the Panthers tonight, in one of those "playing for pride" games. Or whatever.
  • Steve Mason will be in the cage tonight for the Jackets.
  • Looks like he'll be opposite Scott Clemmensen in the Florida net.
  • The Panthers boast an intriguing group of forwards. Outside of Stephen Weiss, none of them are household names. Niclas Bergfors, one of the players traded to Atlanta in the Kovalchuk deal, was acquired by the Panthers at the deadline. He is a player that can break open a game, but needs to be more consistent. David Booth is a perfect secondary scorer-I'd love to have him on a line with Umby.
  • Dmitry Kulikov is a very good player. I've seen him live twice when he was in juniors, keep an eye on him.
  • Let's hope the Jackets can at least give the home crowd a win, for some fans this is the period in which they decide whether or not to renew their ticket packages- give them hope, boys.
