Panthers 3, Flyers 2 (SO)

The SportsXchange

PHILADELPHIA -- Jonathan Huberdeau and Peter Mueller scored shootout goals to lead the Florida Panthers to a 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

Stephen Weiss and Jack Skille scored in regulation for surging Florida, which is 3-0-1 since a 1-5 start.

Jose Theodore stopped 30 shots and two more in the shootout.

Matt Read and Jake Voracek had Philadelphia's goals. The Flyers had won five of last six games against the Panthers.

Huberdeau went first and beat Ilya Brzygalov with a nifty move. After Theodore stopped Read's five-hole attempt, Mueller snuck one past Bryzgalov.

Theodore then stoned Claude Giroux to win it.

It was the first overtime game for Philadelphia and first shootout for the Panthers. The Flyers picked up a point, though their two-game winning streak ended.

Down 2-1 midway through the third period, the Panthers scored the tying goal just seconds after getting their first power-play chance of the night when Bruno Gervais was called for tripping. Weiss wristed a shot from inside the right circle that hit Bryzgalov's shoulder and bounced in.

Skille gave the Panthers a 1-0 lead midway through the first period on his first goal of the season. A former first-round pick by Chicago, Skille had been a healthy scratch the last two games.

He made coach Kevin Dineen look like a genius for putting him out there against the Flyers. After some crisp passes through the neutral zone, Skille took the puck from Dmitry Kulikov, skated down the center and wristed a shot that sailed by defenseman Kimmo Timonen, hit Bryzgalov and trickled in.

The Flyers tied it just 52 seconds later when Voracek scored on the power play. He took a pass from Timonen, skated around the right circle and fired a slap shot from the faceoff circle. The puck glanced off defenseman Brian Campbell's stick and went right over Theodore's blocker.

Read, who notched a hat trick in a 7-1 win over Florida last month, gave the Flyers a 2-1 lead early in the second. Mike Knuble made it happen with feisty work in front of the net. He tried to stuff a shot past Theodore, who blocked it. But Knuble kept poking away until the puck came loose. Read picked it up and lifted it into the top corner.

All four of Read's goals have come against the Panthers and he's got six in six career games against them.

NOTES: Before the game, Timonen signed a one-year contract extension that will earn him a reported $6 million in 2013-14. "Kimmo's presence on the ice for us and in our locker room is invaluable," general manager Paul Holmgren said. "We look forward to him continuing his all-around play for us." ... Holmgren said injured forward Scott Hartnell may begin skating next week. Hartnell is out with a broken left foot. ... Philadelphia forward Wayne Simmonds missed his third straight game with head and neck injuries. He's been medically cleared for contact. ... Skille's goal was his first point of the season. .... Dineen and assistant coach Gord Murphy once played for the Flyers. Another Panthers assistant coach, Craig Ramsay, was Philadelphia's head coach in 2000-01.
