PANTHERS DOUBLE UP FLYERS FOR SECOND TIME SINCE TRADE DEADLINE

The Florida Panthers took out the Flyers tonight by a score of 4-2 to get them tied for 3rd in the Wales Conference. 

With the Flyers jumping out to the 2-0 lead after the first period, Patrick Roy would shut the door the rest of the way, while the offense came to life. 

It started in the 2nd with Dahlen scoring his 24th, cutting the lead in half to a 2-1 score. That would be all the scoring though as Dafoe and Roy put up a strong 40 minutes. 

The third would be too much for Philly though. Hawerchuk scored his 31st at the 7 minute mark to get the game tied. Thomas would score his 26th of the season which ended up being the game winner. 

Murphy added his 6th with 2 minutes left in the game to seal the victory, 4-2 for the Panthers. 

Patrick Roy got the win moving his record to 29-19-8 on the season. 

Special teams was a -1 for the night. The PP only had one chance and did not score, while the Flyers went 1-4.
