SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -- Tomas Fleischmann scored two goals, including an empty-netter with 40.2 seconds remaining that ended up being the game-winner in the Florida Panthers' 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.
Erik Cole scored with 30 seconds left to bring the Canadiens within 3-2.
Panthers goaltender Scott Clemmensen bounced back from his worst outing of the season the night before against the New York Rangers by stopping 17 of Montreal's last 18 shots. He replaced Jose Theodore 4:16 into the second period after Theodore left with a lower body injury.
The Canadiens struck first at the 5:37 mark of the first period when Travis Moen blasted a slap shot from the left circle.
Fleischmann tied the game with a power-play goal 3:46 into the second period and Shawn Matthias broke the tie 3:08 into the third with his seventh goal of the season.

Much has happened in the Panther world since I took my Christmas vacation, and I'm happy to be at it again for the Southeast leading Florida Panthers.
