The second goal was 5-hole and he should've stopped it. No excuses.
I am not a fan of him. He should be traded or waived. Marky is ready for the NHL and deserves more of a chance then Clemmer. I am happy with the Panthers play of late, but we should've had 2 points last night and a 3 game winning streak.
I highly doubt Theo would of had a shutout last night, but that is just my opinion vs yours, because we will never know.
Clemmer had a split second to change is total reaction towards that first goal. Wheeler is a big boy and can hammer the puck. That as not Clemmers fault. Ellerby should of gotten his stick out of the way, let your goalie see the shot the whole way cleanly and take the body. Definitely not Clemmers fault.
Like I said in the post your quoted, the second goal Clemmer was screened. It is very hard to stop what you don't see. Defense needs to clear the front of the net there.
