Still smarting from the vicious hit Philly's Mike Richards put on Florida team leader David Booth, the Cats have called up a couple of bruisers from AHL Rochester.
Both will be dressed tonight as the Panthers may try to exact some revenge on the new Broad Street Bullies.
"I don't know if we're just going to run around and try to fight everybody we see," defenseman Keith Ballard told the Sun-Sentinel. "It's one of those things: I'm sure the league will be watching this game, they always pay attention to stuff like that. And I'm sure any hit on Mike Richards that's looked at as retaliation will probably be punished, which is going to end up hurting our team again."
Booth hasn't played since the Oct. 24th hit sent him sprawling onto the ice and then to the hospital with a concussion.
"Yeah I'm angry. How could you not be angry? Everyone would be angry," Booth said. "I just hope we get a win. That's the best way to get back at those guys, just to beat them in their own barn after what happened last time."
So to those South Florida hockey fans (Anyone? Anyone?) who feel they don't see enough action out on the ice, tonight may be a good chance to catch some rock 'em, sock 'em hockey.
