Cats Pick Up Point vs. Habs in Shootout

When the Panthers hosted the Canadiens in their last meeting 12 days ago Olli Jokinen's hat trick was the story. However the Panthers visited the Bell Centre in Montreal on Tuesday night and the story was two four letter words...Auld and Huet.

Through regulation and overtime each goaltender played on their head while facing an arsenal of offense from the opposition. Cristobal Huet, 6-1 in his last seven starts heading into the game, faced 36 shots recording his 13th career shutout.

Auld, who has only one shootout in his career, stopped 37 shots picking up his career second and first for the Panthers this season. Alex Auld has put together some solid goaltending as of late stopping 121 of 129 shots faced in his last four starts with a save percentage of .938.

The game was decided in a shootout where Montreal earned the extra point. The point was the first for the Panthers in three games and was probably the hardest earned point of the season. There is no aspect of the Panthers game that was exposed and they played 65 minutes of solid hockey. The game played out as if it were playoff hockey game with only four minor penalties called on the night and the refs setting the tone that the game would be physical letting Bryan Allen and Garth Murray drop the gloves early in the first period. Each of the teams is in the top ten in the NHL on the power play and both were 0-2 on the evening.
