Florida Panthers Vs. San Jose Sharks: Backup Goalies Lead Starting Lineups For Tonight's Game

According to Eric Gilmore at NHL.COM's website:

Thomas Greiss will definitely start for San Jose, Sharks coach Todd McClellan said after his team’s morning skate. Panthers coach Kevin Dineen said whether Scott Clemmensen starts will be a game-time decision, but the Miami Herald is reporting that Clemmensen will "definitely" open against San Jose.

Clemmensen is 1-0 with a 25 save shutout in his only appearance this season versus the Dallas Stars. The Panthers backed him up with six goals. Jose Theodore will get a view from the bench in a well deserved break from the action.

Greiss is 4-3-0 on the season with a 1.99 goals against average. His save percentage is .929.
