Report: Markstrom to start for Panthers

Jacob Markstrom will be in net for the Florida Panthers when they visit the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday, according to a report by Miami Herald reporter George Richards.

Richards also reports that Tim Thomas worked out on the ice Thursday, but coach Kevin Dineen said the veteran goalie is unlikely to be ready for the team's home opener Friday night against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Thomas started the Panthers' first three games but left in the first period Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers with a groin injury. Markstrom relieved and stopped all 25 shots he faced in a 2-1 loss.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
