Goalie nods: Montoya aims to guide Panthers to 12th win in a row


Al Montoya faces considerable pressure in attempting to keep the Florida Panthers’ winning streak alive, but he’s on a hot streak of his own.

Montoya’s currently on a four-game winning streak, only allowing a single goal in each of his past five appearances.

Roberto Luongo‘s been getting most of the reps this season, and with good reason, as the veteran netminder is on a personal-record nine-game winning streak of his own.

Montoya’s done a remarkable job of running with his chances this season, as he has a 6-1-1 record and fantastic .938 save percentage.

The Panthers hope to hit a 12th consecutive win in facing the Oilers in Edmonton tonight. Cam Talbot looks to be in the net opposite Montoya.
