DENVER - MAY 4: Marcel Goc #57 of the San Jose Sharks celebrates his goal against the Colorado Avalanche with teammate Mark Smith #16 in the second period of Game six of the Western Conference Semifinals during the 2004 NHL Stanley Cup playoffs May 4, 2004 at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. The Sharks lead 3-1 after two periods and will play the Calgary Flames in the Western Conference Finals if they hold on for the win. (Photo by Brian Bahr/Getty Images)
Marcel Goc scored the lone goal in a shootout, Jose Theodore stopped all three shots he faced during the tiebreaker and the Florida Panthers beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 on Saturday night. It's the first time since 2005-06 that Florida has four points after three games. Theodore denied Martin St. Louis, Steven Stamkos and then Vincent Lecavalier to end it, thrusting his arms in the air after sealing a home-opening win for Florida. Theodore stopped 30 shots in regulation and overtime. Marc-Andre Bergeron scored a pair of tying goals in the third period for Tampa Bay.
