Gameday, Panthers vs. Penguins, W, 3-2

Theo will be the starter tonight against Pittsburgh in Florida. In other Panthers goalie news, Clemmensen didn't practice due to soreness, and they have recalled Markstrom to be Theo's backup tonight. The Panthers are also missing important forwards Goc, Upshall, and Bradley due to injuries.

After one period, the Panthers and Penguins are tied at 1. José saved 6 of 7 shots. The one goal was a bit of a flub on his part. He almost knocked it in himself after what looked like a mishandle, but a Penguin did actually touch it. But then he came back later to stone Cooke on a breakaway, so he redeemed himself quite well. One of the best things about him...he can shake off a bad goal and just move forward. Years of experience help with that.

After 2 periods the score is tied at 2. José was hit with 16 more shots on goal that period. Lots of good saves.

It's like that first goal really made him mad, and he was a beast the rest of the night. He saved 39 of 41 shots, and the last period he stood on his head. He saved their bacon numerous times, especially in the last 3 minutes. Wow, it was crazy. My heart was pounding and my hands were shaking. He always keeps his cool and stays calm. Such composure.
