Panthers’ Thomas Could Miss A Few Weeks

Panthers_Tim_Thomas_2013PHILADELPHIA — The Panthers lost veteran goalie Tim Thomas to what is called a slight groin strain in the opening period of Tuesday night’s game.

The goal Thomas let in after not being able to pull himself off the ice in time proved to be the difference as Philadelphia ended its three game losing streak by beating the Panthers 2-1 at Wells Fargo Center.

Thomas, who could be out at a few weeks, gave up both goals Tuesday night off odd shots. The second fluky goal came when Thomas went down to make a save on a shot by Sean Couturier and got hurt in the process.
