Manny Malhotra brought the puck down along the boards, then passed from the left circle to Weise, who put the puck into an open net on Clemmensen's glove side. The Panthers tied it at 5:00 of the second on Kulikov's goal. Goc took a shot from the right circle that was turned aside by Luongo. The puck bounced out to the left circle and Kulikov took a slap shot that beat Luongo on the short side.

The Panthers recalled Brian Foster from AHL San Antonio to back up Clemmensen on Monday night. ... Canucks D Sami Salo did not play due to concussion symptoms.
