Martin Gerber has no problem shutting down the Florida Panthers. Gerber stopped 26 shots last night and Eric Staal scored the game's only goal in the visiting Carolina Hurricanes' 1-0 victory over the Florida Panthers. It was Carolina's franchise-record ninth straight win. Florida visits the Flyers tonight. Gerber posted his second shutout of the season - both over Florida - and had to be perfect to outduel Roberto Luongo, his Panthers counterpart. "We have a really good feeling right now," Gerber said.

Steve Shields was traded yesterday by the Boston Bruins to the Florida Panthers, who needed to strengthen their goaltending. The Bruins received future considerations in the deal that came 3 days before the season opens. Shields will replace backup goalie Jani Hurme, who was lost in Friday's NHL waiver draft. Roberto Luongo is Florida's starting goalie. Shields had a 12-13-9 record and 2.75 goals against average in 36 games last season. In other NHL news: Denis Hamel was traded to the Ottawa Senators by the Washington Capitals in exchange for future considerations.

The Florida Panthers could make a major playoff push if they played as well at home as they do on the road. The visiting Panthers' 2-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils yesterday ended a five-game winless streak (0-1-1-3) and extended their team record to 13 straight road games in which they gained at least one point (5-0-4-4). They last lost in regulation on the road Oct. 24. "Obviously, we'd like to be better at home," said Branislav Mezei, who scored the go-ahead goal late in the second period.

PITTSBURGH - Fans came to see Sidney Crosby's first NHL goal, and they saw it. The bonus was Mario Lemieux's first two-goal game in 2 1/2 seasons. The downside: Somehow, the Pittsburgh Penguins lost. Glen Murray's second goal, a one-timer just as a Penguins penalty was expiring 1 minute, 23 seconds into overtime, completed a rally from a two-goal deficit as the Boston Bruins defeated the Pens, 7-6, last night. The Bruins, putting 41 shots on backup goalie Sebastien Caron, won for the first time in three games and dropped Pittsburgh to 0-3. Crosby, 18, living up to expectations only three games into his pro career, collected two assists in addition to his goal.

Ray Whitney's tiebreaking goal with 5 minutes, 15 seconds remaining lifted the Detroit Red Wings to a 2-1 victory over St. Louis last night, snapping the Blues' nine-game unbeaten streak (7-0-2).

Dallas Drake scored for the Blues, and Chris Osgood, a former Red Wings goalie, made 22 saves. Detroit is 11-2-0-1 in its last 14 games.

One day after Olli Jokinen criticized his Florida teammates for a lackluster effort against Boston, they responded. Niklas Hagman had his first two-goal game in more than a year, and Jokinen had a goal and two assists as the Panthers beat host Pittsburgh yesterday, 4-2. After a 4-1 loss at the Bruins on Saturday, Jokinen said: "We've got five or six guys showing up a game. When you put on the jersey, you've got to play hard. " The Panthers got the message. "They talked about it and said they hadn't been playing as well as they wanted to and didn't compete as hard as they wanted to in Boston," coach Mike Keenan said.

The Florida Panthers made a coaching change and, for a change, came away with a home victory. Marcus Nilson, Ray Whitney and Pavel Bure scored and Roberto Luongo made 24 saves as Florida beat Boston last night, 3-0, in Duane Sutter's debut as the Panthers' coach. Sutter, from a family of six brothers who played in the NHL, replaced former Flyers coach Terry Murray on Thursday. Murray and his brother, general manager Bryan, were fired with Florida 6-18-7. "I'm pleased with the players' effort more than anything," Sutter said.

SINCE LONG BEFORE the NHL lockout began, Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo has been on his way out of Vancouver. He was largely beaten out for Vancouver's starting job by up-and-comer Cory Schneider, solidified in the Canucks' first-round loss to Los Angeles last spring. First, it was supposed to be Luongo to the Florida Panthers, where he once played and now spends the majority of his time in the offseason. It made sense. The Panthers, coming off their first Southeast Division title in team history, need an upgrade for Jose Theodore and Scott Clemmensen.

Different lineup, different result. Way different. Two nights after they suffered a six-goal loss in Florida, the Flyers rebounded Monday and defeated the same Panthers, 1-0, in their home opener at the loud, sold-out Wells Fargo Center. Emergency starter Michal Neuvirth, in his first career start for the Flyers, made 31 saves and recorded his first shutout since 2012, giving Dave Hakstol his first NHL coaching victory. "I was feeling good the whole day, and the guys did an outstanding job - they had great sticks and so many blocked shots," Neuvirth said.

AFTER THE FLYERS' overtime loss to Calgary on Tuesday night, most of the players were huddled around a TV in the team's lounge at Wells Fargo Center. More players started to join the group as word circulated about the Panthers and Maple Leafs game in South Florida. By nature, the Flyers were grabbed by the action: The Panthers are one of two teams in pursuit of a final Stanley Cup playoff spot in the East. But something far more compelling was taking shape on the ice. Panthers starting goaltender Roberto Luongo went down in the first period and now backup Al Montoya was limping toward the bench in need of relief.

This is not a recording: The Flyers lost in a shootout. The Flyers almost always lose when the game goes into a glorified breakaway contest. This time, they dropped a 2-1 shootout decision to Florida, as the Panthers' Dave Bolland scored the winner at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday night. It was the Flyers' 10th straight shootout loss, including 0-5 this season. "Some guys are good at shootouts, and some guys aren't," said coach Craig Berube, whose team had four shooters lose control of the puck in the shootout.

Defenseman Michael Del Zotto was an unwanted free agent most of the summer, and he finally signed a one-year deal with the Flyers when Kimmo Timonen was sidelined with career-threatening blood clots. It's beginning to look like the best $1.3 million the Flyers have spent in a long time. After a shaky start to the season, Del Zotto has steadied himself, and he continued his strong all-around play Thursday night, helping the Flyers dominate Florida, 4-1, at the Wells Fargo Center.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Despite Florida's wretched record, the Flyers will not have an easy game against the Panthers on Tuesday night at the BB&T Center. The Flyers, desperate for a win to keep their second-place hopes alive in the Metropolitan Division, are facing a Florida team that has become formidable with the acquisition of veteran goalie Roberto Luongo. The Panthers have the second-fewest points (64) in the NHL, but Luongo has kept them competitive since he was reacquired from Vancouver.

THE LEAGUE'S best team on the road this season snapped the longest home winning streak in league history. Daniel Sedin scored his second goal of the game with 15.4 seconds left in regulation and Alex Burrows got the only goal in a shootout, lifting the Vancouver Canucks to a 4-3 victory last night that ended the Detroit Red Wings' NHL-record, 23-game home winning streak. "It's nice that we're the team that ended the streak," said Burrows, who lifted a backhand over Jimmy Howard when he went low. "It's remarkable to win that many games in a row on home ice. " Detroit hadn't lost at Joe Louis Arena since Nov. 3 against Calgary, breaking the previous single-season mark of 20 shared by the 1929-30 Boston Bruins and 1975-76 Flyers.
