Gameday, Panthers @ Avalanche, 3-4, OT

Nice little quote today from Semyon Varlamov about José:

“He was my best friend in Washington. It was tough…when he played well all season and in second game coach puts the young guy out on ice. He was very professional and helped me in the playoffs."

After José's first period after 18 days, the Panthers are leading 1-0. He faced 9 shots on goal and looked sharp.

He is wearing the new TikiGargoyle Mask. Here's the back of his mask...waiting for a better photo.

Sorry I disappeared for a while. This was a painful one. They were leading 3-1 going into the 3rd, but ended up losing 3-4 in OT. The Panthers had so many opportunities to put it away and didn't. Including a 4 minute PP in the 3rd. Ouch. José was quite solid tonight. First game back after 18 days and stopped 40 of 44. You could see his frustration though...he slammed his stick a couple times at the end. It was painful to see his disappointment. Here's hoping for something better on Friday.
