Benoit Pouliot's goal at 1:19 of overtime -- his second of the contest -- capped a rally and sent the Tampa Bay Lightning past the Florida Panthers, 6-5, on Saturday. Pouliot was left alone atop the Florida crease to one-time a puck which had bounced off the end boards and past Panthers defenseman Tyson Strachan into a half-open net. Steven Stamkos added two goals and one assist for the Lightning, who snapped a six-game slide on the road against their long-time division rivals. Alex Killorn picked up his initial NHL tally and Teddy Purcell also scored to back 25 saves by Anders Lindback. Jack Skille, Jonathan Huberdeau, Shawn Matthias, Jerred Smithson and Tomas Kopecky lit the lamp for the Panthers, losers of four straight including the last three beyond regulation. Jose Theodore stopped only 30- of-36 shots in defeat.

Evaluating goalies in context: adjusted Save Percentage, or SV%+
Broad St Hockey - over 4 years
One of my favorite stats in baseball is called Adjusted ERA, or ERA+. Here's how it works. If soon-to-be-extended Phillie (please?) Cole Hamels has a 3.07 ERA, you might look at that number and know what it means, but you might not actually have any idea how good/bad that is relative to everyone else, and that's especially so on a year-to-year basis when run production, pitching skill, etc. fluctuates as much as it does. ERA+ more or less fixes that. Basically what it does is takes someone's ERA and puts it on a scale that tells you how good it is compared to the rest of the league. It's calculated with a fairly simple formula: (League average ERA / Pitcher ERA) * 100 Such that 100 is average, higher than 100 is above average, and lower than 100 is below average. (It also includes some park effects, but I'm not going to get into that here. Here's further reading, if you're interested.) So what does this have to do with hockey, exactly? Hit the jump and I'll show you. ...

Five Former Eagles Advance to Conference Semifinals
BC Interruption - almost 5 years
[Ed. note -- Front Page'd] Fifteen former BC Eagles saw their NHL clubs in first round action during the NHL playoffs, and a third of them are lucky enough to still be in the hunt for the Stanley Cup. Here's a look at their performance in the first round. No Eagles shone brighter than the ones on Broadway. Brian Boyle and Chris Kreider were two of the best players on the Rangers roster - and arguably their best forwards - throughout the first round, despite the fact that neither saw action in all seven games. Boyle scored in each of the first three games, including the game winners in both Games One and Three, before being concussed in Game Five and missing the remainder of the series. Despite missing the final two games, Boyle's three goals remain tops on the team for the first round. Kreider was a healthy scratch for Games One and Two, the entered the line-up while Carl Hagelin served his three game suspension. After a tentative first few games, Kreider was the Rangers ...

Hartnett: With Henrique, The Devils’ Future Is Now
CBS New York - almost 5 years
‘Devils In The Details’ By Sean Hartnett » More Columns It’s unlikely that Adam Henrique will win the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s most outstanding rookie. Gabriel Landeskog of the Colorado Avalanche is the hot favorite to come away with that award. That won’t matter in the long run. Henrique has shown the Devils and their fans exactly why he’s a vital player for both their present ambitions and long-term future. He’s backed a solid 51-point rookie campaign with playoff poise as he dominated a pressure-filled Game 7 in Florida. Henrique was a threat to the Panthers practically every time he touched the puck. Not only did Henrique score the game’s opening goal but he led multiple breakaways down ice and eventually scored the double-overtime winner. Henrique capitalized on a Panthers’ turnover and beat Jose Theodore through the five-hole. Henrique spoke to reporters post-game about his game winner. “I guess somebody’s gotta be the hero right? Why not me? I’m sure that’s what a l ...

Despite having home ice advantage in the first round, however, the Panthers would ultimately lose Game 7 to the New Jersey Devils in double overtime, 3–2, with Theodore stopping 33 of 36 shots.
    After an impressive year as a backup in Minnesota, Theodore signed a two-year, $3 million contract with the Florida Panthers on July 1, 2011, to replace Tomáš Vokoun as Florida's starting goaltender.
    More Details Hide Details
    He earned his 250th career victory on January 2, 2011, with a 6–5 overtime victory against the Phoenix Coyotes.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 2010
    Age 33
    On October 1, 2010, he signed a one-year deal worth $1.1 million with the Minnesota Wild, as the backup goaltender to Niklas Bäckström.
    More Details Hide Details
    Theodore won the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy in 2010.
    More Details Hide Details
    In 2010, he had a 30–7–7 record and tied a Capitals franchise record for consecutive wins (10) and ended the season on a 20–0–4 streak.
    More Details Hide Details He started the playoffs but was pulled in Game 2 and replaced again by Varlamov and did not play any more games, as the Capitals were eliminated in seven games by the Montreal Canadiens.
  • 2009
    Age 32
    On August 20, 2009, the Washington Capitals and Theodore's sister-in-law reported that his two-month-old son, Chace, had died.
    More Details Hide Details Theodore founded Saves for Kids, a charity to benefit the NICU at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C.
    Cloutier gave birth to their second child, Chace (born premature) in the summer of 2009.
    More Details Hide Details
    Joining a team that featured young talents Alexander Semin, Nicklas Bäckström, Mike Green and, primarily, Alexander Ovechkin, Theodore helped lead the Capitals to a division title and entered the 2009 playoffs as the second seed.
    More Details Hide Details However, after allowing four goals in a game one loss to the New York Rangers in the opening round, he was pulled in favor of backup Semyon Varlamov.
  • 2008
    Age 31
    He parted ways with the Avalanche in the off-season and signed a two-year, $9 million contract with the Washington Capitals on July 1, 2008.

    More Details Hide Details
  • TWENTIES
  • 2006
    Age 29
    Theodore's play did not see much improvement the following season, in 2006–07, as he lost the starting role to Budaj with a 13–15–1 record, 3.26 GAA and .891 save percentage.
    More Details Hide Details
    In addition to the drug controversy, Theodore's play with the Canadiens was marked by a significant drop and he was being outperformed by backup Cristobal Huet. Consequently, he was dealt at the trade deadline to the Colorado Avalanche on March 8, 2006, in exchange for Swiss goaltender David Aebischer.
    More Details Hide Details At the time of the trade, Theodore was on the injured reserve; he strained his Achilles tendon after slipping on the winter ice outside his home. He came off the injured reserve with enough time to play in the last five regular season Avalanche games. His 3.04 GAA with the Avalanche combined with his 3.46 rating earned from his previous play with the Canadiens marked the worst GAA of his career. He was nonetheless designated the starting goalie for the playoffs over Peter Budaj, playing in nine games over the first two rounds before the Avalanche were eliminated.
  • 2005
    Age 28
    When NHL play resumed in 2005–06, it was revealed on February 9, 2006, that he failed a random drug test conducted prior to the 2006 Winter Olympics.
    More Details Hide Details The failed test was later revealed to be caused by a prescription hair loss medication Propecia, which Theodore had been taking legally for eight years. Propecia contains the drug finasteride, which can be used as a masking agent for the performance-enhancing drug nandrolone among weight-trainers and bodybuilders, but it is not a performance-enhancing drug in itself. Theodore did not face any punishment from the NHL as he had applied and received approval for a therapeutic use exception. Theodore did, however, receive a two-year suspension from international play.
  • 2004
    Age 27
    In 2004, he played backup for Team Canada at the World Cup, seeing Canada defeat Finland in the final to capture the championship.
    More Details Hide Details His father, Theodore (Ted) Theodore, is of Greek (Macedonian) descent, while his mother is of Spanish descent. On December 15, 2004, his father and half-brother pleaded guilty to charges of loansharking and possession of a restricted weapon. In February 2005, the 71-year-old Ted Theodore was given a $30,000 fine, but no jail time. Theodore has one child, Romy (born March 22, 2006), with his wife Stéphanie Cloutier.
    Due to the 2004–05 NHL lockout, Theodore went overseas to play for Djurgården of the Swedish Elitserien.
    More Details Hide Details
    He ended the season with a second 30-win campaign, helping the Canadiens qualify for the 2004 playoffs as the seventh seed.
    More Details Hide Details They upset the Boston Bruins for the second time in three years in a seven-game opening series, before being eliminated by the top-seeded, eventual Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning in four.
  • 2003
    Age 26
    During the season, he participated with the Canadiens in the 2003 Heritage Classic, the NHL's first ever outdoor hockey game.
    More Details Hide Details The game was held at Commonwealth Stadium versus the Edmonton Oilers, a game which Montreal won 4-3. Playing in sub-zero temperatures, Theodore famously wore a toque over his goalie helmet.
    He bounced back in 2003–04 with a GAA of 2.34 and save percentage of .919.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 2002
    Age 25
    Theodore was unable to match his previous season's performance in 2002–03 and ended the season with significantly lower statistics (2.90 GAA and .909 save percentage) to go with a losing record that saw the Canadiens unable to make the playoffs.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 2001
    Age 24
    Theodore made his debut for Canada's men's team in the 2001 World Championship.
    More Details Hide Details He recorded two shutouts and a 1.63 GAA, but Canada was defeated in the quarter-finals by the United States.
    Theodore emerged as a world-class goalie in 2001–02, when he turned in a Vezina and Hart Memorial Trophy-winning performance with a 30–24–10 record, 2.11 GAA and .931 save percentage.
    More Details Hide Details He led the Canadiens into the playoffs as the eighth and final seed in the Eastern Conference and was a pivotal factor in upsetting the top-ranked Boston Bruins in the first round. He became an immediate fan favorite in the city of Montreal. The Canadiens were, however, eliminated by the Carolina Hurricanes the following round in six games.
    During a game on January 2, 2001, Theodore became the sixth goaltender to directly score a goal when he attempted to clear the puck from the defensive zone against the New York Islanders and scored into the empty net, which was vacated by John Vanbiesbrouck for the extra attacker.
    More Details Hide Details He became the first NHL goalie to directly score a goal and record a shutout in the same game, as the Canadiens beat the Islanders 3–0. But he was the second goaltender to be credited with a goal and a shutout in the same game, after Damian Rhodes, who was credited with a goal in a 6–0 win on January 2, 1999.
