Panthers down another goalie, injured Driedger to miss weeks

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) Florida goalie Chris Driedger will miss several weeks with what's believed to be a groin injury, the latest health issue at that position for the Panthers.

The Panthers announced the diagnosis Saturday, calling it a lower-body injury.

Driedger was hurt midway through the first period of the Panthers' 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday. He is 5-2-0 in nine appearances for Florida this season, with a 2.48 GAA.
