Scott Clemmensen gets another start for the #FlaPanthers v #Islanders
Clemmensen allowed three goals on 31 shots in a 4-1 loss on Thursday vs. the Bruins. It was enough to earn Clemmensen another start tonight vs. the Islanders. It his a good matchup but it is tough to put trust in Clemmensen and his 4.15 GAA and .858 SV%.
Clemmensen relieved Jose Theodore on Tuesday after he gave up four goals on 19 shots. Clemmensen came in and stopped all 15 shots he faced and recorded the win vs. a tough Pittsburgh team. He will face the Sabres tonight who sit last in the Eastern conference right now and he will likely be opposed by Ryan Miller who can steal a game, so Clemmensen will need to be good to give the Panthers a chance.
Neither Clemmensen or Theodore have good numbers this season and the way the Panthers have played this season I wouldn't recommend starting either of them. They will get the occasional win but not enough to make them worthwhile in fantasy. Only relevant in deep leagues.
Looks like Clemmensen in net but will be a game-time decision.
Theodore has struggled this season but is coming off of back-to-back wins so it is surprising that the Panthers are turning to Clemmensen. Clemmensen has only started 1 games this season and came in for Theodore in another. In both contests he gave up 4 goals which has his GAA sitting at 4.80 and an .840 SV%. The last time the Panthers played the Jets they won 7-4.
