Al Montoya will get the start in Calgary on Friday night.

Montoya has been quite mediocre so far this season. Through seven starts and 11 games, he's been beaten for 23 goals. That's a 2.61 GAA and a .904 save percentage. Not very good. He hasn't fared well against Calgary either, including a start back in November, Montoya's been beaten for nine goals in two starts.
Jan 9 - 6:20 PM

Al Montoya has returned to the Florida Panthers.

He was away from the team briefly because of the birth of his son. Sam Brittain has been returned to the minors and Montoya will back up Roberto Luongo on Thursday night in Vancouver.
Jan 8 - 4:09 PM

Al Montoya is back in South Florida because his wife gave birth to a son.

He is expected to fly to Vancouver on Wednesday and return to the team before Thursday's match. Florida brought up ECHL goaltender Sam Brittain to fill in Montoya at practice.

Al Montoya stopped four of five shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to Washington.

Montoya entered the game at the start of the third period because starter Roberto Luongo exited the game, after being run over by Alex Ovechkin. Montoya entered the game with the Panthers down 3-2. 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. If Luongo is forced to miss any time, Montoya will likely be forced into duty.
Jan 4 - 6:32 PM

Al Montoya stopped only 29-34 shots the Rangers sent his way in the 5-2 loss on Wednesday.

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.

Al Montoya will be in goal for Florida on Wednesday against the Rangers.

Roberto Luongo stopped 33 of 34 shots in a 2-1 shootout loss to Montreal on Tuesday and he'll get the night off. Montoya owns a 2-2-2 record to go with a .915 save percentage and a solid 2.27 goals-against average.
Wed, Dec 31, 2014 09:51:00 AM

Al Montoya made 28 saves in the Panthers’ 4-3 overtime loss to the Sabres on Saturday night.

Montoya was making his sixth start of the season, and his first since Dec. 1. The 2004 first-round pick hasn’t lived up to those lofty expectations, but he has carved out a nice career as a backup. He has a 2.27 goals-against average and .915 save percentage this season and isn't worth owning unless Roberto Luongo goes down.

Confirming a previous report, Al Montoya will indeed get the start in Buffalo on Saturday night.

Montoya has three wins in four career starts agains Buffalo, though tonight will be his first as a Panther. Only six goals allowed in that time.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 05:30:00 PM

Look for Al Montoya to get the start Saturday night against Buffalo.

Roberto Luongo, who had a strong game against the Red Wings Friday night stopping 29 shots in a 3-2 shootout win, will likely get the night off. Montoya is coming off a 2-1 loss to Columbus almost two weeks ago, in which he stopped 21 shots.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 10:05:00 AM

Al Montoya made 21 saves on 23 shots in Monday's 2-1 loss to Columbus.

The Panthers never led in this hockey game. The 29-year-old has been a solid backup for the Panthers' but he doesn't have any fantasy value sitting behind Roberto Luongo. With Luongo probably returning to Florida's net tomorrow versus Detroit, Montoya will go back to being the backup. Montoya is 2-2-1 this season with a 2.00 GAA and a .923 save percentage.

Al Montoya will get the nod for Florida on Monday against Columbus.

Roberto Luongo feels ready to return, so he may start Tuesday's game versus Detroit. Montoya was in goal for Florida's 3-2 win over Ottawa on Friday.
Mon, Dec 1, 2014 12:05:00 PM

Al Montoya stopped 22 of 24 shots in Florida's 3-2 win over Ottawa on Friday night.

Montoya got the start because starter Roberto Luongo is out with an upper-body injury. The 29-year-old had another solid outing for the Panthers. He is now 2-1-1 with a 1.99 goals-against-average and a .924 save percentage. Even with Luongo out, Montoya isn't a great fantasy option.

Al Montoya will be between the pipes on Friday for Florida.

Dan Ellis has been called up from the minors to back him up, while Roberto Luongo is out with an upper-body injury. Luongo isn't expected to be out for very long.
Thu, Nov 27, 2014 04:30:00 PM

Al Montoya was called upon in relief of starter Roberto Luongo in the Panthers 5-2 loss to LA on Tuesday.

Montoya saw little action and stopped just one of two shots sent his way by the Kings in the third period. The Panthers back-up made a strong start in Anaheim a few nights ago and it will be interesting to see if he gets his number called with two tough games against San Jose and Nashville remaining on this West road trip.
