The Florida Panthers held a scrimmage yesterday at the BB&T Center and Team Red got the best of Team White, cruising to an 8-1 win.

Owen Tippett, Carter Verhaeghe and Mason Marchment each scored twice and Max Gildon and Eetu Luostarinen also lit the lamp for Team Red.

Noel Acciari scored the lone goal for Team White. His goal cut the deficit to 3-1.

Max Gildon opened the scoring early in the first period by putting puck by Chris Driedger off the skate of defenseman Kevin Connauton.

Verhaeghe took a crossing pass from Marchment and finished on the backhand for a power-play goal.

Tippett made it 3-0 in the second with this goal. Luostarinen picked up the assist.

Scott Wilson with the steal, Acciari with the goal as White gets on the board.

Luostarinen feeds Tippett again and Red restores its three-goal lead.

Marchment with a blast to make it 5-1 late in the middle frame.

Anthony Duclair sets up Luostarinen with a nice pass to make it 6-1. That’s the third point of the game for Luostarinen.

Verhaeghe whips in his second of the tilt. Not sure who made the pass, but it was a beauty.

Marchment completes the scoring by coming out of the corner and finding the back of the net.

After the game the teams played a five-minute overtime and a shootout. Driedger made some nice stops in overtime and five out of ten attempts were converted in the skills competition as White got the best of Red by a 3-2 count.

Frank Vatrano (1st), Alex Wennberg (3rd) and Aleksi Heponiemi (5th) scored for White, while Brett Connolly (2nd) and Grigori Denisenko (4th) didn’t.

Duclair (1st) and Jonathan Huberdeau (2nd) got Red off to a good start before Aleksander Barkov, Tippett and Luostarinen came up empty.

Here’s Huberdeau’s pretty shootout goal.

The Panthers will take a break today before resuming training camp on Saturday.
