PHILADELPHIA - Dave Bolland scored the winning goal in the shootout to lead the Florida Panthers to a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.
Brandon Pirri also had a goal in the shootout for Florida (14-8-8), which played beyond regulation for the fourth straight game. The Panthers were coming off Tuesday's 2-1 victory over Washington that set an NHL record by going 20 rounds in the shootout.
This one took six rounds as only Pirri and Philadelphia's Jakub Voracek scored in the three regulation rounds of the shootout. And neither team managed a goal in the fourth or fifth rounds. After Bolland beat Steve Mason low, Roberto Luongo stopped Sean Couturier to send the Panthers to the win.
Florida improved to 4-4 in shootouts while Philadelphia dropped to 0-5.
Scottie Upshall scored in regulation for Florida while Voracek had Philadelphia's goal.
