Panthers Shut Out Bruins 2-0

The Bruins, the former hottest team in the NHL…meet the Panthers, the hottest team in the NHL. The Panthers improved to 14-5-3 in the New Year after beating the Bruins 2-0 Saturday night.

Thomas Vokoun was outstanding in net, finishing with 41 saves, including 14 in the third period. Radek Dvorak scored two goals (including one of the shorthanded variety) to help the Panthers to their first win against the Bruins this season. Boston had beaten them 4-2 and 4-0 in November and December.

“We had 41 shots but I don’t think that was the true story,” Boston goalie Tim Thomas said. “It wasn’t that Vokoun was ravenous and we had open nets and he had open net saves. I think they did a good job of keeping us out of the house.”

Thomas kept the Bruins in it with 27 saves against 29 shots, but it was not enough.

The Bruins next skate Sunday night against the Lightning.
