Florida Panthers netminder Jacob Markstrom is expected to make his first NHL start either Monday or Tuesday - and he'll face a tough test either way.Panthers head coach Kevin Dineen says he'll go with the same lineup for Saturday's home opener against the Tampa Bay Lightning that he has used in the team's first two games.That means Jose Theodore will get the start in goal, where he's 1-1 with a 2.03 goals-against average.Markstrom's first start will likely either come Monday against the Lightning in Tampa or Tuesday against the host Washington Capitals.The 21-year-old Swede got into just one game last season, playing the final two periods of a 5-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Jan. 23. He surrendered two goals on 14 shots in that one.
