Vokoun makes 39 saves, lifts Florida Panthers to 2-0 win over Toronto Maple Leafs @NHLdotcom

SUNRISE, Fla. - Tomas Vokoun stopped 39 shots for his second shutout in four games and the Florida Panthers beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-0 on Saturday night.

Kenndal McArdle netted his first NHL goal, and Cory Stillman also scored for the Panthers, who have earned at least one point in five straight home games.

Jonas Gustavsson made 20 saves for the Maple Leafs.

Vokoun has six shutouts this season and 37 in his career. His last came Monday night against Atlanta, when he stopped 27 shots in a 1-0 win.

McArdle made it 2-0 with 6:55 left. He took a pass from Gregory Campbell and scored with a wrist shot from the right circle.

Stillman opened the scoring with a power-play goal at 4:36 in the second period. With Tomas Kaberle in the penalty box for tripping, Dennis Seidenberg fired a slapshot from just inside the blue-line that hit the end boards and bounced back out past the net. Stillman, positioned in the crease, poked in the rebounding puck.

The Panthers were playing without right-winger Nathan Horton, who broke his left leg during Thursday's 2-1 shootout loss to the New York Islanders. Horton, who has 17 goals and 29 assists through 51 games this season, is expected to miss four to six weeks because of a fractured tibia.

NOTES: The Maple Leafs and the Panthers next meet March 23 in Toronto. ... C Matt Stajan left early in the first period after he was hit in the face with a puck. Stajan skated to the bench after leaving a pool of blood on the ice, but returned to the game. ... Seidenberg was also hit with a puck in the second period and returned.
