About Last Night: Panthers 3, Senators 2 (SO)
Luongo stops 37, Bergenheim & Trocheck score 23 seconds apart and the Cats come back to win.

ABOUT LAST NIGHT is the morning-after recap of last night’s Florida Panthers game produced by “Hockey Pat” McGrath, a lifelong Cats fan who previously wrote for the Florida Panthers themed blog “TheRatTrick”. It is a followup to Hockey Pat’s hilariously informative gameday article: THE LOWDOWN.

PANTHERS 3, SENATORS 2 (SO)

Led by another dominating performance from Roberto Luongo, the Florida Panthers overcame a 2-0 second period deficit to defeat the Senators 3-2 in a shootout. Sean Bergenheim and Vincent Trocheck scored goals 23 seconds apart in the second period and Luongo stopped 37 of 39 shots as well as two of the three shootout attempts from the Senators.

Here is what you may have missed:

Tweet Beat

This is how Twitter was reacting to the Panthers big win in Sunrise last night….

First Period:

Lu-per man? Okay I’ll leave…

2nd Period

Understatement of the year.

3rd Period

Overtime

Shootout

Glad that Huberdeau’d is becoming a verb…

Vinsanity!!!

Clamping Down

The Senators came out flying last night firing 20 shots on Luongo in the first period alone. Lu was up to the task and the Panthers were able to tighten things up on the defensive end, giving their goalie some breathing room.

Florida came out in the second frame and logged 19 shots of their own. The defense limited Ottawa to just five shots in the third and two in overtime.
