Panthers defeat Hurricanes in shootout

Aleksander Barkov, Jonathan Huberdeau score for Florida to end three-game losing streak

by Alain Poupart / NHL.com Correspondent

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Aleksander Barkov and Jonathan Huberdeau scored in the shootout, and the Florida Panthers ended a three-game losing streak with a 3-2 win against the Carolina Hurricanes at BB&T Center on Tuesday.

Jaromir Jagr scored a power-play goal to join Gordie Howe and Chris Chelios as the only players to score multiple goals at 45 or older in the NHL, according to TSN. Jagr scored against the Anaheim Ducks on Feb. 17, two days after he turned 45.

"I felt like we played very good in the first period and for whatever reason we thought it's over after 20 minutes," Jagr said. "We just gave them the momentum. They started playing better and better, started scoring goals. At the end of the night, I felt like we were lucky to get one point. We've got to learn we cannot play only 20 minutes."

Q and A with Dale Tallon

Tallon talks about this season, what to expect at the deadline and more

by Jameson Olive JamesonCoop / FloridaPanthers.com

SUNRISE, Fla. - The Florida Panthers are in the hunt.

With a quarter of the season left to play, the Panthers are four points out of third place in the Atlantic Division and three points behind Toronto for the second wild card spot in the Eastern Conference.

Hampered by injuries for the majority of their season, the Panthers have recovered from a sluggish start and have looked like a serious threat since top-line forwards Aleksander Barkov and Jonathan Huberdeau returned to the lineup in mid-March. Over the past three weeks the Panthers have won eight of their last 12 games to move into contention.

Demers' Diary: Playoff Hockey From Here On Out

by Jason Demers jasondemers5 / FloridaPanthers.com

I think everything clicked on our last road trip.

We were playing the right way, getting good bounces, and then capitalizing on those bounces. We were getting scoring from all different lines and people were contributing from everywhere. When you have that kind of all-around team effort, it's tough to lose games

by Alain Poupart / NHL.com Correspondent

SUNRISE, Fla. -- The Calgary Flames scored three first-period goals in less than five minutes, and Chad Johnson made 36 saves in a 4-2 win against the Florida Panthers at BB&T Center on Friday.

Johnson, who was making his first start since Feb. 13, when he was pulled after two periods in a 5-0 loss to the Arizona Coyotes, stopped all 30 shots he faced after the first period.

"I thought he was very good tonight," Calgary coach Glen Gulutzan said. "I just thought him coming in tonight, he was so calm in his demeanor, especially late with all the traffic and the shots. He kept things real clean. I thought he was the difference for sure."
