Upshall tapped the loose puck past backup goaltender Anders Nilsson, who started in place of Evgeni Nabokov. Upshall scored again at 15:26 on the power play to make it 5-3 for Florida. Tim Thomas made 35 saves for the Panthers.
But Florida's Marcel Goc and Matthias scored early in the third to tie the game at 3 before Upshall's late scores.
