By The Numbers: Panthers 3, Maple Leafs 1
Panthers By The Numbers takes a closer look at some of the
interesting stats that you may or may have not known about.

Panthers 3, Maple Leafs 1

1 – Down a man, Stephen Weiss wove his way through two Maple Leafs defenseman near the Toronto blueline, deked Martin Gerber and backhanded the puck top shelf for his 12th of the season and first in eight games 7:15 into the opening period. It was Weiss’ first shorthanded tally of the season and the Panthers sixth. It was also Weiss’ first of his career (7th season, 390th game).

6 – In what has been missing from the Panthers game lately, Weiss’ goal was just the sixth time in the last 17 games (8-7-2) that they have scored first. Ironically, the Cats had scored the first goal of the game in four of the last seven, including tonight (2-3-2).

4 – Toronto knotted the score at one with 1:52 left in the first as Mikhail Grabovski rebounded the loose puck past Tomas Vokoun for his 17th of the season, 5th on the power play. After not scoring in 17 straight, Grabovski has been hot lately, recording his fourth tally in the last five games.

11 – Sliding the puck over to Richard Zednik in the slot, David Booth collected his second point of the night as Zednik’s shot hit a downed Andre Deveaux and past Gerber five-hole for Zednik’s 15th of the season 6:21 into the second. Booth now has 11 points (5 goals, 6 assists) in his last six games.

9 – Talk about streaky. Or would it be considered consistency? Peltonen gave the Panthers a 3-1 lead 7:48 with his 11th of the season as he made a nice move to the left of the net and beat Gerber with a shot low across the ice. It was Peltonen’s first goal in nine games (February 28th). What’s even weirder? The last goal before that came nine games prior (February 10th). And the goal before that? Nine games before that as well (Two on January 10th).

2 – The Panthers have been good generally this season in taking minor penalties (in the league entering the game for least amount of minors). That goes for the Panthers netminding duo of Vokoun and Craig Anderson as well. Vokoun was whistled for his first penalty of the season for delay of game when his clearing attempt went over the glass and into the crowd 17:01 into the second. Anderson has one penalty this season as well. Just as a reference, Dallas' netminder Marty Turco leads the league with 16 penalty minutes on the season.

19 – Talk about a difference of one game. Last game the Panthers had 19 shots on Jose Theodore and the Capitals. They had that amount in the second period alone, outshooting Toronto 19-7. Three of those seven shots came on Vokoun’s penalty late in the period as well. Zednik led the charge with three second period shots.

4 (part II) – The Panthers defeated the Leafs for the fourth time this season, their first season sweep of a team this season. Last season, the Cats also had a series sweep, against the Islanders. Florida won twice in regulation against Toronto (4-2 on January 6th and tonight) and twice in overtime thanks to comebacks (4-3 on February 3rd and 5-4 on February 10th). It was the Panthers first sweep of the Maple Leafs of three or more games in the Cats fifteen year history. Florida did win both games against Toronto during the 1995-96 season.

16 – The Cats offense picked it up Thursday night against the Leafs, firing 42 shots at Gerber (12 in the first, 19 in the second and 11 in the third). It was the first time in 16 games they topped the 40 shot mark when they put 43 on the board in a 2-1 shootout victory over the Rangers on February 13th.

6 (part II) – The Cats leaders finished with six in two different categories. Zednik finished with that second period goal on six shots which tied a season high for a game (December 23rd against Nashville) while Campbell led the team in the hits category.
