Panthers goalie Jose Theodore said he is still sore following Saturday's epic shutout win vs. the Devils and will most likely miss tonight's Game 6 in New Jersey.
Backup Scott Clemmensen said that he expects to make the start in Theodore's place.
A win Tuesday over New Jersey would give Florida the playoff series win and send them on to the Eastern Conference semifinals.
Theodore is 2-1 in his four starts in the series while Clemmensen has a 2.11 goals-against-average in his two appearances.
Saturday night at the Bank Atlantic Center, Theodore stonewalled the Devils with 30 saves in the 3-0 shutout win.
Defenseman Jason Garrison has already been ruled out of the game, his third straight, because of a lower-body injury.
