Boyes, Huberdeau score in shootout as Panthers beat Wild 2-1 to snap 3-game slide

SUNRISE, Fla. - Brad Boyes and Jonathan Huberdeau scored in a shootout, lifting the Florida Panthers over the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Saturday night to snap a three-game losing streak.

Boyes' backhander went through the legs of goalie Josh Harding for the winner. Huberdeau beat Harding on the stick side for the first shootout goal.

Zach Parise and Mikko Koivu were turned aside by Panthers goalie Tim Thomas in the shootout.

Aleksander Barkov scored in regulation for Florida, and Thomas made 31 saves.

Jonas Brodin scored a goal for Minnesota, while Harding stopped 21 shots. The Wild lost their third straight and managed two or fewer goals for the seventh time this season.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
