Gameday, Panthers vs. Jets, 4-5 (OT)

This could prove to be a HUGE game tonight. Since the Capitals lost in regulation last night, the Panthers could CLINCH THE SE DIVISION with a win tonight!!! That is so exciting I could scream. This is going to be the longest day ever waiting for the game.

After one period the Panthers lead 2-0!! That feels good. I'm not counting on anything yet, but at least we have a little breathing room. The Panthers are outshooting the Jets 12-5.

José saved all 5 shots he faced. He wasn't tested too much, but one of those was a difficult save, and he came through with flying colors.

Well, things got a little hairy there in the 2nd half of the 2nd period. The Jets scored 2 and cut the Panthers lead to 3-2. The Jets poured it on with 13 shots on goal, and José stopped 11 of them. The 2nd goal that was scored was after he made 3 initial saves. Big period coming up. The Panthers can't sit back.

There is less than 9:00 left in the 3rd period and the Panthers now trail 3-4. Just know if they end up losing, I won't be updating this entry for a while. So if there isn't an update, you'll know why.

Ok, the Panthers lost 4-5 in OT. José stopped 25 of 30 shots on the night.

I'll just say that the Panthers wouldn't even be close to the position they are in if it wasn't for him, so if he let in a soft goal tonight, then I could point fingers at a whole lot of other games where he stood on his head. The rest of the team could've stepped up, and they didn't. And that's all I'll say about that.

They only need 1 point to clinch the division still. They have 2 games left, one in Washington on Thursday, and then at home vs. Carolina on Saturday. They will get that point, and they will clinch the division. It's just going to be a little longer for it to happen.

José Theodore is still the MVP of this team, as far as I'm concerned, and I honestly don't care what anyone else says.
