Florida Panthers coach Paul Maurice doesn’t sound like he’s ready to make a goaltender change.
For the past three-plus weeks, Maurice has been going with Alex Lyon as his goalie — first out of necessity and now by choice.
But in Friday’s 4-2 loss to the visiting Boston Bruins in their Eastern Conference first-round matchup, Maurice pulled Lyon with 11:28 left in the third period and the Panthers trailing 3-0.
The Bruins lead the series 2-1. Game 4 on Sunday afternoon will be on Florida’s home ice in Sunrise, and Maurice has two possible selections between the pipes:
1: Lyon, a 30-year-old career minor leaguer who this season has set personal highs for games, starts and wins. Of his past 11 starts, he is 7-3-1, and all those statistics include the postseason. Before this season, he had made just 17 NHL starts (7-7-2).
