The Panthers sent goalie Jacob Markstrom back to San Antonio on Monday.
It's safe to say it wasn't performance-based as he stopped 65 of 71 shots and gave up three goals in losses to both Pittsburgh and Boston.
Without him, things could have been a lot worse.
Regardless, the Panthers probably have a roster move - or two - to make as Kris Versteeg and Scottie Upshall are close to coming back and skated again today in Coral Springs.
And the Panthers sure could use some scoring. I think Jose Theodore is going to be fine once he's put back in there tomorrow against the Penguins.
-- The Panthers will have a rare morning skate at the Coral Springs Iceplex on Tuesday.
The free workout starts at 10:30. The Penguins are still scheduled to hold their skate in Sunrise on Tuesday. That is close d to the public.
