 At least THAT monkey is off of their collective back. The Panthers evened out the series with New York at two wins apiece, closing - mercifully - another chapter on the year. Bouwmeester, Skrastins, and Zeds (MAMMOTH goal - see below) scored for host Florida, while flu-symptom-recovering-titan Tomas Vokoun closed the door on 20 shots for the win. The Islanders' four-game winning streak was broken in the process. Good writin' eh?

 

 

 Thanks to Robert S. for submitting this example of Zednik awesomeness.

 

 

"That was a great move by him. Not too many players can do that in this league. He did, and he executed pretty well."
