Hurting Panthers recall Markstrom, Yonkman

SUNRISE, Fla. -- After losing three players to injury in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, the Florida Panthers called up two players up from San Antonio of the American Hockey League for Sunday's rematch at BB&T Center.

Goalie Jacob Markstrom and defenseman Nolan Yonkman were recalled, and goalie Jose Theodore and defenseman Dmitry Kulikov were placed on injured reserve.

Markstrom was pulled from his start for San Antonio on Saturday after Theodore went down with a leg injury 2:22 into the Panthers' game at Carolina. Markstrom is expected to start against the Hurricanes on Sunday.

With Kulikov out, the Panthers will be missing three regular defensemen. The other two are captain Ed Jovanovski (knee) and Mike Weaver (lower body).

Forward Scottie Upshall also left Saturday's game with an injury, and coach Kevin Dineen said he was doubtful for Sunday's game. Upshall was injured in the first period in his first game back after missing the previous 13 because of a lower-body injury.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
