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.
In general its a known hockey proposition that when the backup comes in the D tightens up..not an issue particular to the panthers.

I just noticed more block shots in the 3rd than ive seen in a long time. That aside, clemmer made 15 of his own. good on him.
