Tim Thomas pulled after second period with Panthers trailing Penguins


Tim Thomas didn’t have his best night for the Florida Panthers on Saturday.

The veteran 39-year-old goaltender started against the Pittsburgh Penguins, but wasn’t on the ice for the third period after allowing four goals only 13 shots through 40 minutes. That’s a .692 save percentage.

He was making his 11th consecutive start in goal for Florida.

The Penguins, as a result, jumped out to a 4-1 lead heading into the final period. Evgeni Malkin had a goal and two assists for Pittsburgh.

Scott Clemmensen came into the game for the Panthers.
