Andre Burakovsky beat Montoya 5:42 into the third period. Montoya is 2-4-2 with a 2.61 goals-against-average and a .904 save percentage.

It was a tough game for Montoya who was peppered steadily with shots all night long, but it was he defense who wasn't able to bail out some of his juicy rebounds. The Panthers needed to win this game to help keep pace, or obtain control, in the playoff hunt, this loss sets them back pretty good.

He has a 2.27 goals-against average and .915 save percentage this season and isn't worth owning unless Roberto Luongo goes down.
