RALEIGH, N.C. -- Florida goaltender Jose Theodore was injured on the first shot of the Panthers' game against Carolina and had to be helped from the ice.

Theodore made a right-pad on Jussi Jokinen's slap shot 2:22 into the game, but immediately fell forward in obvious pain. He was helped from the ice and was unable to put any weight on his right knee and leg.

He was replaced by Scott Clemmensen, who gave up three goals on the first nine shots he faced as Carolina jumped to a 3-0 lead.

Florida defenseman Dmitry Kulikov left the game early in the second period. He lost an edge skating in his own zone and slid backwards into the boards. He left the ice holding his right wrist.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
