Report: Panthers to start Theodore against Flyers

According to the Miami Herald, the Florida Panthers will start Jose Theodore in goal Thursday against the Philadelphia Flyers, with Scott Clemmensen serving as the backup.

Top prospect Jacob Markstrom, called up from the American Hockey League on Wednesday, will be a healthy scratch, but the newspaper reported he is expected to play Friday, when the Panthers play at the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Herald also is reporting forward Alex Kovalev will be a healthy scratch Thursday.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
