Jocelyn Thibault will start in goal when the Penguins play the Florida Panthers in Miami tomorrow, coach Michel Therrien said today.

Thibault has been the backup to Marc-Andre Fleury this season, posting a 3-5-2 record. Fleury is 29-13-7.

The decision to start Thibault comes after Therrien was critical of Fleury's play in a 6-5 loss to the New York Islanders on Monday. The Islanders scored the winning goal with just under 27 seconds left in the game, ending the Penguins 16-game streak of being unbeaten in regulation play.
