The first 20 minutes of Tuesday night’s game between the Florida Panthers and Carolina Hurricanes are in the books, and through the first period, the score remains knotted at zero. Neither team has found the net in what is the 24th game of the Panthers’ 2011-2012 season.
The Hurricanes definitely had the edge in the period though, as they fired nine shots on goal compared to just three by the Panthers. Jose Theodore continues to play well for the Panthers, as he stopped all nine shots. Theodore, who has a save percentage of 92.4, is only allowing 2.37 goals per game, and has been a big reason why the Panthers have started off the season solidly.
Thanks in part to Washington’s recent skid, the Panthers currently are first in the Southeastern Division of the Eastern Conference with 28 points.
