Panthers forward Sean Bergenheim has been so sick with the flu lately that he seemed to forget that he's still not completely recovered from multiple surgeries on his groin and hip. Bergenheim may have found a cure for 20 months of frustration as he scored two goals and goalie Tim Thomas did the rest to lift the Panthers to a 3-1 victory over the torrid Flyers to kick off a five-game holiday homestand at the BB&T Center. "I told Bergy after the game that we're going to make sure he's sick every day if he plays like that,'' joked Panthers coach Peter Horachek. "It's tough to come back from that. You rely on energy and skating, those things that affect that. "You know it's there, you just kind of have to go out and play through it.'' The Panthers are now 4-4-1 since Horachek took over earlier this month and they ended a five-game losing streak in Sunrise to the Flyers, who had gone 6-0-1 in their last seven games. Bergenheim was benched for three of the five games of the recently concluded road trip, partly due to Horachek not wanting to change a winning lineup, and also because the affable Finn is still, "battling through stuff."
