Game 2 Recap: Reimer and Defense Drop the Ball in 5-4 loss to Columbus in home opener

Well this is going to be a long couple of weeks. With Roberto Luongo out for 2-4 weeks, the Panthers are forced to turn to James Reimer and by goodness he was awful. Reimer let in 2 easy ones. However it wasn’t his fault. Keith Yandle had an inexcusable turnover in the 1st period that Panarin capitalized on. The second line hasn’t gotten going yet and the 5 forward power play unit is useless. Barkov and his line had strong games but still this should’ve been a win. D and Reimer really dropped the ball on this one. I don’t have much more on this because I’m really pissed off.
