Cats Face Trio Of Big Home Games This Week

Panthers Are Eight Points Out; Atlanta, Pittsburgh and Tampa Come To BAC

SUNRISE, Fla. – Sitting just six points out of the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot, the Florida Panthers visit the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight before returning home for a trio of big home games this week.

The Cats will face the Atlanta Thrashers on Wednesday, April 5 at 7 p.m. presented by Termidor, the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday, April 7 at 7:30 p.m. presented by Bruce Rossmeyer's Harley Davidson, and Tampa Bay on Sunday, April 9 at 5 p.m presented by Norwegian Cruise Line.

Tonight's game will be broadcast live and statewide on Sun Sports.

"There is a lot of excitement around here because every game is important for us," Captain Olli Jokinen said. "Our goal is to make the playoffs and to do that we have to keep winning hockey games. The fans have really helped us build some momentum at home and big crowds are going to be important for us this week."

All three games will have major playoff implications as both Atlanta (one point up) and Tampa Bay (six points up) sit between the Panthers and the eighth and final playoff spot. But the Cats will have ample opportunity to make up ground with four remaining games against both teams including tonight's clash at Tampa Bay.

Fans interested in attending the three biggest games of the season should buy tickets now. Tickets can be purchased at all Ticketmaster outlets, charge by phone (954-523-3309 in Broward County, 305-358-5885 in Dade County and 561-966-3309 in Palm Beach County), at www.ticketmaster.com and the BankAtlantic Center box office or by calling 954-835-PUCK.

For fans that want to view this week's games live, their only option is the BankAtlantic Center, as the Cats following three home games will not be televised.
