Friday Caterwaul: Panthers GameDay Open Forum

SUNRISE, FL - OCTOBER 15: Sean Bergenheim #20 of the Florida Panthers waits for a rebound as goaltender Mathieu Garon #32 of the Tampa Bay Lightning stops a shot on October 15, 2011 at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida. The Panthers defeated the Lightning 3-2 in a shoot out. (Photo by Joel Auerbach/Getty Images)

[Tampa Bay's] Mathieu Garon will get the start in net, as Dwayne Roloson's inconsistency will place him on the bench perhaps for more than the next two games. Then again? If Garon is overworked tonight, how can you expose him to a second potential bombardment when the teams face off again in Tampa tomorrow?
