Gameday, Panthers @ Blue Jackets, L (1-4, one empty net)

After one period the Panthers trail 1-0. The game started off very badly. The Panthers were so flat!! That goal was on a 2 on 1 breakaway after a broken play. They did step it up a bit, but were unable to score on a 5 on 3 that lasted 1:15. I'm really getting concerned, not gonna lie.

José stopped 5 of 6 shots on goal.

Well, after 2 the Panthers now trail 2-0. But as Frank of The Rat Trick said, "It would be 5-0 if not for Theo." They made FOUR stupid penalties in a short span of time, and in large part due to José they killed 3 of them. One goal snuck through a bunch of traffic though.

José stopped 14 of 15 shots.

Disappointing doesn't cover it. José deserves better than what his team is giving him. If not for him and Clem this team would be in 12th place, simple as that. He saved 25 of 28. And I can admit one of those goals was soft. But when your team has expected miracles out of you every game for...oh, the past month, it's going to wear on you. He's human. He's still been their saving grace.

Back at 'em Sunday in Detroit. The only positive there is that the Red Wings recently lost to Columbus also (by the way, Columbus is at the bottom of the NHL standings, no lie.)
