RALEIGH, N.C. - Florida Panthers goalie Jose Theodore has left the game against the Carolina Hurricanes just over two minutes in with an apparent leg injury.

Theodore, the 2002 NHL MVP with Montreal, kicked out his right pad to stop Jussi Jokinen on a 2-on-1 rush and immediately crumpled to the ice on the rebound attempt.

He was replaced by Scott Clemmensen after only 2:22 had elapsed.

Theodore (4-6-3) entered play Saturday night with a 3.30 goals against average and an .892 save percentage.

I didn't think it would actually work, but it ended up working, so I'm thanking my lucky stars tonight.
