14 Shots On Goal By Booth, No Goals

from Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel,

After one of David Booth’s career-high 14 shots on goal knocked off the mask of Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask, the backup netminder flashed a grin as if to say, “Not tonight.”

It wasn’t Booth’s night or the Panthers’ in Thursday’s 4-0 loss to the Bruins at TD Garden, where the final score belied a taut struggle between two teams coming off road wins the night before.

Former Panther Nathan Horton assisted on all three of linemate Milan Lucic’s goals as Florida (8-9) failed in its bid to go over .500 for the first time this season.

“[Horton’s] line was the difference in the game,’’ said Booth, who had hit his previous high of nine shots twice this season. “It was really a 1-0 game all the way through. I think we outshot them [41-40]. I was going to keep shooting. It’ll go in eventually.’‘

Anyone know what the record is for shots on goal by one player in a game?

“Hello, Son? It’s Me, Dad. You’ve Been Traded.” Plus News from the Farm:11/18/10

Our weekly look at the performance of the Southeast Division’s top minor league affiliates from the week gone by kicks off this week with a thought on Calgary Flames GM Darryl Sutter trading his own son, Brett, to the Carolina Hurricanes (where he’ll report directly to AHL Charlotte, assuming he clears waivers).

I remarked on Twitter that, though I had found trouble a time or two in my younger days, my father had only threatened to ship me to another country – a reference to the younger Sutter’s recent run-in with the law, stemming from his alleged involvement in a bar fight in Scottsdale, Arizona. Several outlets have reported, however, that the trade – Sutter, a seldom-used forward, and defenseman Ian White to Carolina for d-man Anton Babchuk and grinding winger Tom Kostopoulos – was in the works long before the incident in question.

Lightning, Other Southeast Clubs Have Fared About as Expected So Far

When last the Tampa Bay Lightning were home, a celebration of a hard-fought, come-from-behind, 5-3 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins was in order before the Bolts set out on a four-game western road swing. And, after kicking off the trip with a 3-0 win in Phoenix over the Coyotes, at 7-2-1 and atop the Eastern Conference standings, Tampa Bay fans, really, couldn’t have asked for a much better start.

Now, nearly two weeks since that last home game, after an overtime loss in Anaheim and two consecutive regulation defeats following that win in Phoenix, things aren’t as rosy for Tampa Bay and the Lightning look to get back on track tonight against the visiting Toronto Maple Leafs.

So what are we to make of Tampa’s 7-4-2 start? Hold that thought…

JJ’s Three Cheers: 11/06/10 (And a Look Ahead to Southeast Games Tonight)

Gotta play catch-up again first, as yesterday’s minor league update took longer than expected and robbed from some of my otherwise-set-aside-for-writing time. Alas, it’s Saturday morning’s edition of JJ’s Three Cheers.

From Thursday’s games first:

***Cheers to Ottawa’s Jason Spezza, who put up a goal and four points in total, factoring in on all of his club’s offense as the Senators downed the New York Islanders 4-1. Losers of six straight (and outscored 20-5 in their last five contests), consider that quality start to the season officially neutralized and then some for the Isles.

News from the Farm, 11/05/10: Rochester and Florida Break Up (Plus the Usual)

A day late and a dollar short (well, several hundred dollars short, if I’m going to be honest, after a theft earlier this week set me completely off my rocker and wreaked havoc on my weekly schedule along multiple avenues), it’s the latest edition of News from the Farm, where we take a close look at the AHL affiliates for each of the NHL’s five Southeast Division teams.

This week, before we get into game results and our standard stat packs, how about some actual news?

According to several reports (including this one by Kevin Oklobzija from theDemocrat and Chronicle, straight out of Rochester), the Florida Panthers’ relationship with the AHL Rochester Americans will not be extended beyond this season. Rochester president Lewis Staats has said the organization will be exploring all options and they will have some with multiple affiliation deals between NHL and AHL clubs expiring at season’s end.

Targeting Travis Moen

from Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel,

The last time the Panthers faced the Canadiens they were fighting mad after veteran forward Travis Moen repeatedly pummeled Florida’s top draft pick Erik Gudbranson while his hands were pinned against the boards by an official during a 6-2 preseason loss.

Gudbranson, 18, circled Saturday night’s regular-season rematch against the first-place Habs, however, he was sent back to juniors after his agent and the Panthers were unable to come to terms before the season opener.

“I’ve heard about that,’’ said Panthers enforcer Darcy Hordichuk, who was with the Canucks when the Moen-Gudbranson fight took place. “I’m sure that will change tomorrow. We’ll see how he likes it when somebody gets in his face. There wasn’t any need for that. That’s why I’m here to make sure stuff like that doesn’t happen.’‘
