The NFHL Game of the Day


Panthers Clinch Third

The Florida Panthers dealt the Philadelphia Flyers a death blow in their attempts to move into 3rd place in the Wales Conference and avoid a 1st round match up with the Boston Bruins.  Marc Bergevin scored twice and Kjell Dahlin had the other goal as the Flyers won 3-1.  Patrick Roy out dueled Tom Barasso, stopping 33 out of 24 shots, while Barasso made 23 of 26 shots.  Steve Duchesne had the lone Philly goal.  Florida will get the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 1st round, while the Flyers will get the Bruins, though who gets home ice advantage will be determined when the Flyers play the Islanders on Sunday.
