Quick recap, Panthers fall to Pens in SO

March 27, 2011

PITTSBURGH - The Florida Panthers fell to the Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1 in a shootout Sunday afternoon at the Consol Energy Center. For the Penguins it was an NHL record 4th straight shootout win. With both teams out of firepower (Sidney Crosby and Evgeny Malkin are hurt and the Panthers have...yeah), both teams got goals from unlikely sources.

All of the regulation scoring came in the 2nd. Alexander Sulzer had the puck for the Panthers at the point at 15:32. Ryan Carter tipped in in for his 3rd of the year to put the Cats on top. Darcy Hordichuk also assisted on the goal.

2 minutes later, at 17:49, Ben Lovejoy scored the equalizer for the Penguins. It was HIS third of the season with Alexi Kovalev and James Neal helping on the goal.

That was the score through two, three, and overtime (four). After regulation, Florida goalie Tomas Vokoun pulled himself after suffering a back problem in the third. Scott Clemmensen came in cold and played well in OT, stopping all four shots against him. In the shootout, both teams failed to get a tally the first time around. but Kovalev and Neal both scored in the 2nd and 3rd shootout frame, respectively...and after a Niclad Bergfors miss, the Penguins took the game in OT. Florida heads to Columbus tomorrow to take on the Blue Jackets.
