Leclaire didn't show much rust Tuesday night. The way the Panthers are playing these days, they are veritable WD-40 for creaky goalies.
With Leclaire getting his first start since March 20, the Panthers didn't offer up much of a challenge in a 5-2 loss to the Senators in front of perhaps the smallest actual crowd at BankAtlantic Center this season. The Panthers announced it at 11,790 -- making it the fifth home game to be below the 12,000 mark.
