Tomas Fleischmann scored his second goal of the game to give Florida a 4-3 lead at 13:53 of the third. Marcel Goc added an empty-netter in the final minute.

St. Louis assisted on Matt Carle's goal 5 minutes into the first period that made it 1-0, and scored from in-close to put Tampa Bay up 3-2 at 5:47 of the second.

Nick Bjugstad scored his first NHL goal for the Panthers. Scottie Upshall had the other Florida goal.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
