The New Jersey Devils defeated the Florida Panthers 3-2 Tuesday to force game seven in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal. Travis Zajac scored the overtime winner for the Devils.
But the question I have is where was Panthers’ goaltender Jose Theodore and how serious is his injury?
After Theodore was brilliant in game five of the series Saturday afternoon, in making thirty saves, he did not take part in Tuesday’s morning skate in New Jersey.
The injury is very puzzling to me because Theodore was excellent in the last game and showed no signs whatsoever of any particular ailment.
Right now all the Panthers are saying is that he has an undisclosed injury. I’m sorry. I know it’s playoff time, but hockey fans simply deserve more information. How did Theodore get hurt between Saturday and Tuesday? Did he get an injury while possibly being reacquainted with Paris Hilton? Probably not, but until the Panthers supply us with all the information, it’s a little fun to speculate.
