Do you think the team is better in front of Clemmensen?

If you do think that, isn't it rather frustrating that they don't play the same way for both goaltenders?

I'm not sure if they're consistently better in front of backups than starters. However, if that's the case, they should start playing the same way for the starter.

It also seems like the team scores more goals with Clemmensen in net, for whatever reason.

I don't get it. I doubt any other team in the NHL has a much better W-L record when the backup plays like the Panthers have done the past six years.
