04/20/2013 15:42 Devils cling to hope, storm past woeful Panthers
Patrik Elias scored twice and the New Jersey Devils kept their faint playoff hopes alive by rallying from a two-goal deficit for a 6-2 win over the Florida Panthers on Saturday.
Jacob Markstrom enters this season as Florida's goalie of the future, but is expected to start the 2012-2013 season in the AHL. The 6-foot-3 butterfly goalie has plenty of potential and could see himself with the big club sooner rather than later. In seven games played this past season, Markstrom was 2-4 with a 2.66 goals against average and a .905 save percentage. Markstrom is a top keeper option and a viable sleeper option should he play himself onto the roster with a strong showing in camp. Neither Scott Clemmensen or Jose Theodore have much upside remaining, making Markstrom the smart choice in keeper drafts. (Updated 8/14/12)
