Stephen Weiss scored the first two playoff goals of his 10-year NHL career, Jose Theodore stopped 23 shots and the Florida Panthers got their first playoff victory in nearly 15 years, beating the New Jersey Devils 4-2 on Sunday night to even the first-round series at a game apiece. Marcel Goc had a goal and an assist for the Panthers, who survived a frantic Devils rally in the third. Travis Zajac and Ilya Kovalchuk scored in the first 2:02 of the third period, and Martin Brodeur made 20 saves for New Jersey, losing a playoff game to Florida for the first time in six career postseason starts against the Panthers. Tomas Fleischmann had an empty-net goal as time expired and Florida fans littered the ice with hundreds of toy rats - a tradition that dates to the Panthers' run to the 1996 Stanley Cup finals. Game 3 in the Eastern Conference series is Tuesday night in New Jersey.
