Biggest Gain: Jose Theodore

It's been an interesting week for Theodore, who saw 144 minutes while stopping 77 of 82 shots (.939 save percentage). As fantastic as Jose was this week, the offense didn't give him much support scoring only two goals with him in net (Sean Bergenheim and Tomas Fleischmann).

Biggest Loss: Mikael Samuelsson

After a hot start to the month of February, Samuelsson had a week to forget. Going minus-three (minus-one in all three games) and scoring zero points while playing 51 minutes this week. Samuelsson also didn't record a single shot on goal against Washington, a game where the Panthers desperately needed his offense.

Goaltenders Trend Notes
Scott Clemmensen

Keaton Ellerby

http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217737/down.png

Another pointless week for Ellerby, who let his body do the talking with 16 hits and 12 blocked shots.
Jason Garrison http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217725/cross.png Injured Reserve as of Feb 12, 2012 (Lower-body injury) was injured Feb. 11 and could return this week.
Erik Gudbranson

http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217737/down.png

Gudbranson's plus/minus is still a team worst at minus-18. But that hasn't stopped his aggressive physical play with nine hits (three in each game) and seven blocked shots.
Ed Jovanovski http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217725/cross.png Injured Reserve as of Jan 17, 2012 (Broken hand) had surgery on Jan. 18. He is skating and could be back this week.

http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/217737/down.png
