Wilma postpones Saturday's Caps-Panthers game

NEW YORK -- Hurricane Wilma may be gone from South
Florida, but still is impacting the Florida Panthers.

The NHL announced Tuesday that Saturday's game between the
Panthers and Washington Capitals has been postponed due to the
impact of Hurricane Wilma on BankAtlantic Center.

No makeup date has been announced.

Hurricane Wilma struck South Florida early Monday as a Category
3 storm with winds of 120 mph. The Panthers had their game
last Saturday against the Ottawa Senators postponed due to the
threat of the hurricane.

Florida plays at Pittsburgh on Tuesday before visiting
Philadelphia on Thursday. The Panthers' next home game is
scheduled for November 9 against the New York Rangers.
