Panthers 4 - Hurricanes 2

7 –  With his first period goal, David Booth extended his point streak to seven games. He would also add an assist, setting up Nathan Horton for the game-winner in the third period. The forward has five goals and six assists over the seven games.

107:21 –  The Panthers have been fantastic in the first period, not allowing a goal in 107:21 of first period minutes until Anton Babchuk beat Tomas Vokoun with a wrist shot with 2:10 left in the period Thursday night. The last time the Cats had allowed a goal was five games ago when Alex Kovalev scored a power play goal for the Canadiens with 9:31 left on December 29th. The Panthers had outscored their opponents 8-0 over that time frame.

31 –  It took just 31 seconds for the Panthers to score into the third period as Jay Bouwmeester crashed the net and one-timed Cory Stillman’s cross-crease pass into the wide-open net for a power play goal

4 –  The Panthers have been hot on the power play lately, scoring in four straight games with the man-advantage. They are 5 of 21 (23.8%) over those four games.

42.8 –  Florida was very accurate in their shooting in the third period, putting two pucks past Cam Ward on only six shots and adding the empty netter (42.8%). Bouwmeester scored 31 seconds in and Horton netted his 11th of the season 2:55 later to give Florida a 3-1 lead and Gregory Campbell iced it with the empty netter with 36 seconds remaining.

63 –  It was the great view on the scoreboard for the Panthers as they earned a 4-2 victory but it wasn’t a perfect victory. It wasn’t Florida’s night in the face-off circle as Carolina won 63% of the face-offs. Rod Brind’Amour won 15 out of 19 (74%) face-offs for the Canes. For Florida, Shawn Matthias (60% at 3 out of 5) and Gregory Campbell (54% at 7 out of 13) were the only two to having a winning percentage for the victors.

0 –  Finally. Probably the most important stat of all from this game. The Panthers accomplished something they had not done in over a year (123 games) and that was complete a game without taking a penalty. The last time the Panthers stayed out of the penalty box was April 6th, 2007 against Tampa Bay in a 7-2 victory for Florida. It was the third time in history that the Panthers did not take a penalty during a game. is the official Web site of the Florida Panthers.
