Recap: Florida vs. Detroit

Sunrise, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Brad Boyes scored the game-winner in the shootout to lift the Florida Panthers to a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday.

Sean Bergenheim and Nick Bjugstad scored third period goals to tie the game for the Panthers, winners in three of their last four games. Tim Thomas made 24 saves in the triumph.

"It's a good win. It's good to contribute, whichever way I can," Boyes said. "If shootout is the way to do it, I'm happy with that."

Todd Bertuzzi and Pavel Datsyuk lit the lamp for the Red Wings, who have dropped three of four. Jimmy Howard made 25 saves in the setback.

"I tried some different guys. We didn't get it done," Detroit coach Mike Babcock said. "We got one point, we wanted two; we came up one short."

The Panthers trailed 2-0 entering the third but got a pair goals to force extra time.

Dmitry Kulikov fired a shot from just inside the blue line and Bergenheim was there to tip it past Howard to cut the deficit in half with 15 minutes left.

Bjugstad took the puck on the goal line and skated to the front of the net before sending a wrister past Howard to tie the game.

In between goals, a wild shot sailed over the net and shattered a pane of glass behind the net. The Panthers did not have an extra pane in the arena and were forced to replace it with a piece of plywood.

Bertuzzi scored 10:26 into the game. Datsyuk fired a shot from the blue line into traffic, and Bertuzzi collected the disc and sent it past Thomas for an early led.

Datsyuk tipped in a Jonathan Ericsson pass 6:47 into the middle session for a two-goal lead.

Game Notes

In another move that bucks tradition, the Sharks completely revamped their on- ice leadership structure not by selecting new players to wear the precious singular letters on their uniforms, but by stripping the captaincy from Joe Thornton, removing the alternate tag from Patrick Marleau and leaving the other "A" vacant after Dan Boyle signed as a free agent with the Rangers.
