Wideman Goal Puts Panthers Ahead, 2-1, After Two Periods

The Florida Panthers lead the New Jersey Devils, 2-1, after two periods tonight at the BankAtlantic Center.

The Devils led the period in shots, 9-5. New Jersey outshot Florida, 21-17, through two periods.

Dennis Wideman's powerplay goal at 2:15 of the first period put the Panthers ahead. Mike Santorelli set up along the side boards with the puck and fired a shot to Wideman. The Panthers defenseman, alone in the slot, wristed a shot past Brodeur's pads for his fifth goal of the season.

The special teams are the difference-maker tonight. The Panthers are 2-for-3 on the powerplay tonight while the Devils are scoreless in three chances.

Florida will start the third period with 1:55 left of powerplay time as Colin White will serve the rest of his cross-checking minor.
