SUNRISE, Fla. - Trailing by a goal, the Florida Panthers had a five-on-three power play after a double-minor penalty to the Flyers' Max Talbot early in Sunday's third period. It turned out to be the game's turning point, but it an unconventional manner. It was the shorthanded Flyers who benefited, en route to a 3-2 victory over Florida at the BankAtlantic Center. After killing a penalty to Jaromir Jagr, the Flyers were still killing Talbot's high-sticking infraction when rookie Matt Read was pulled down by defenseman Jason Garrison on a shorthanded breakaway.

TAMPA, Fla. - To get a break from hockey, Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper spent the night before Thursday's season opener going to the movies to watch The Martian. Thursday, on a more familiar planet, the hockey universe saw the Flyers skate stride for stride with the defending Eastern Conference champion Lightning at sold-out Amalie Arena. But it wasn't enough. Tampa Bay 3, Flyers 2. In overtime. Defenseman Jason Garrison scored on a breakaway with 2 minutes, 43 seconds left in overtime to give Tampa Bay the win. It was his second goal of the game and it ruined the NHL coaching debut of the Flyers' Dave Hakstol.

Dave Bolland scored a pair of third-period goals as the Toronto Maple Leafs, ignited by goalie Jonathan Bernier's penalty-shot save late in the second period, gained a 3-1 comeback victory.

The fifth annual Winter Classic had a little of everything - snow, controversy, and a loud, lively crowd. But more than anything else, it will be remembered for its theatrical ending. As a national television audience watched and more than 46,967 chilled fans stood at Citizens Bank Park on Monday, crafty Flyers center Danny Briere skated toward one of the NHL's best goaltenders, the New York Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist, for the third penalty shot of his 14-year career. The game's outcome hung in the balance.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Mike Kirby was pretty sure they had looked at the tape. The Holy Ghost Prep soccer forward knew his team had. If the Lancaster Mennonite Blazers did review the video of the Firebirds' PIAA Class AA state semifinal, they would have seen Kirby take a penalty kick. As the senior forward grabbed the ball and rushed to the penalty spot Saturday, that's what he was thinking. That's what he was hoping. Kirby blew the ball by the keeper, converting the penalty shot and putting his team up by a goal.
