Al Montoya (groin) is expected to miss at least two weeks.

That isn't surprising considering how limited he looked when he stayed in Tuesday's game versus Toronto. Montoya will probably be heading to injured reserve soon.
Mar 5 - 11:31 AM

Al Montoya is listed as day-to-day with a groin injury.

He was injured early in the third period, but stayed in the game until 9:08 was left in regulation and then Roberto Luongo returned from an upper-body injury. Luongo took a shot off his neck or shoulder and originally left the game after the first period. Montoya could barely move when the Leafs scored to take a 3-2 lead, so he took the loss in what was a bizarre game.
Mar 4 - 10:43 AM

Al Montoya stopped 20 of 23 shots in Sunday's 4-3 win over Tampa Bay.

Al Montoya allowed five goals on 26 shots in Sunday's 5-1 loss to Pittsburgh.

The Penguins jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the game before Scottie Upshall put the Panthers on the board. The Panthers will be disappointed after they dropped both their games this weekend. Florida started the weekend just one point behind Boston for the final wild card spot in the East but the Bruins defeated the Blackhawks earlier today. Montoya's record falls to 4-6-2 with a 2.98 goals-against-average and a .893 save percentage.
Feb 22 - 8:52 PM

Al Montoya allowed two goals on 28 shots in Friday's 2-0 loss to Dallas.

Montoya allowed two goals in the opening frame but he was perfect the rest of the way. The 30-year-old has been nothing more than an average backup to Roberto Luongo this season. This is Montoya's first loss since January 4th, but he has played in only five games since then. His record falls to 4-5-2 and he has a 2.82 goals-against-average and a .899 save percentage.
Feb 13 - 11:44 PM

Al Montoya is expected to get the nod on Friday night against Dallas.

Feb 13 - 6:17 PM

Al Montoya was great for the Panthers on Tuesday as he blocked 32 of 34 shots in a 4-2 win over the Islanders.

Montoya received a rare starting assignment against his former club and didn't disappoint, improving his record to 4-4-2. His GAA and save percentage are 2.88 and .896, respectively. Despite the strong performance, look for Roberto Luongo to get the nod again in Florida's next game.
Feb 3 - 9:57 PM

He hasn't fared well against Calgary either, including a start back in November, Montoya's been beaten for nine goals in two starts.
