ESPN Anchor Tries Out For Florida. Kind Of…
ESPN SportsCenter anchor Linda Cohn is among 60 participants trying out for the a one day stint as backup practise goalie for the Florida Panthers, as part of the teams “Goal of a Lifetime” contest; created in the wake of the injuries to starter Roberto Luongo and Dan Ellis.
Headed up by Panthers goalie coach Robb Tallas, the try outs will whittle down entrants to just two finalists, who will compete in a shootout during the first intermission of the Panthers alumni game against Montreal on Tuesday.
The goaltender with the best performance in the shootout will be selected as the Panthers’ back-up practice goalie.
