07:31 AM ET 10.23 | Here we go again. Another Panthers game, another shootout, another injury to starting goalie Tim Thomas. Another loss, too, this time 3-2 to defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago at the BB&T Center. The Panthers got the shootout loser point after fighting back from a 2-0 deficit in the third period. But perhaps of greater concern is the injury to Thomas, who missed time with a groin injury last week. Another stellar performance got aborted with 2:59 left in the game. Panthers coach Kevin Dineen said this wasn't the groin acting up again, and that the Panthers would be making a call to San Antonio for Scott Clemmensen. "Fortunately, for me, Kevin Pollock, the ref, was the one who acknowledged him down there," Dineen said. "I could see he was uncomfortable."

I think he's more of a Confederate Danny.

Should've stayed retired. Less hazardous to his health.

Tim Thomas should listen to good advice:

How many players come back and find out things aren't stretching like they used to. He sure fills up the net space.

A real dough-boy to be sure. He played the Hawks tough...but not tough enough.

Yes......those he has.

Expectation of privacy when posting on your Facebook page.......no one has that.

Too bad.......he was a great goalie, and if healthy he could be that again......and only that, as a person he sounds like Forrest Gump talks! "I may not be a smart man, but I know what love is! Jenny.....you'll always be ma girl!"...
