Recap: Florida vs. Philadelphia

Sunrise, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Roberto Luongo turned away 36 shots to lead the Florida Panthers in a 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Willie Mitchell and Aaron Ekblad scored for the Panthers, who have won three of four.

Steve Mason gave up both goals on 30 shots for the Flyers, who have dropped their past two games.

Florida scored at 9:07 of the first period when Mitchell's shot from the left point made its way through traffic in front for his first goal of the season.

Luongo kept the shutout going in the second period by stopping 10 shots.

Ekblad gave Florida some insurance with 4:22 showing in the third. On the power play, Ekblad's slap shot from the high slot off a feed from Brian Campbell went in for his first career goal.

The Flyers pulled Mason with around 3 1/2 minutes to play and finally broke through when Vincent Lecavalier jammed the puck in from the right side. Lecavalier had missed the previous seven games with a left ankle injury.

The goal came with 7.4 seconds to play, though, and there was hardly enough time for the Flyers to get in position to try and tie the game up.
