Capitals' Rechlicz on shootout winner: 'Just got lucky'

Thomas to join Panthers on ice Tuesday

Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon told reporters Monday that goaltender Tim Thomas will be on the ice for training camp Tuesday after joining the team on a professional tryout.

The 39-year-old goaltender passed his physical Monday.
