NOTABLES:

The clubs have met once this season, with the Riggers pulling out a 15-14 victory at the 'Dome Jan. 22. They meet again April 3 at the 'Dome for the last tilt of their three-game season series ... Former Roughneck Chris Panos, one of the most well-travelled players in the league, could be in the lineup for the Sting tonight after the Colorado Mammoth dealt the New York native to Arizona for a third-round pick. The Sting is Panos' eighth team in nine seasons. Arizona also added talented sophomore forward Craig Conn from the Minnesota Swarm for a first-round pick. Both deals are still pending league approval ... In his last three games, Calgary starter Curtis Palidwor has regained his form from last season, allowing only 31 goals on 146 shots for a GAA of 10.3. In the first eight games of the season, Palidwor's GAA was 14.12.
