Markstrom has 39 saves, Mueller scores in shootout to lift Panthers to 3-2 win over Lightning

TAMPA, Fla. - Peter Mueller scored the only goal in the shootout and Jacob Markstrom had 39 saves to lead the Florida Panthers past the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Tomas Kopecky and Greg Rallo both scored goals on deflections of shots by T.J. Brennan to give the Panthers a 2-0 lead after two periods.

The Lightning rallied in the third period to tie the score with goals from Tom Pyatt and Alex Killorn.

After a scoreless overtime, Mueller went first for the Panthers and scored on a backhand shot that slipped past Lightning goalie Mathieu Garon. Markstrom denied Teddy Purcell, Victor Hedman and Steven Stamkos to give the Panthers the win.
