Red Wings hold on to beat Panthers
Sunrise, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Detroit Red Wings scored two goals in the first 80 seconds of the third period and held on to edge the Florida Panthers 4-3 on Saturday.
Brendan Smith and Gustav Nyquist lit the lamp 38 seconds apart to give the Red Wings a 4-2 lead before Sean Bergenheim potted his second of the game for Florida.
The Panthers couldn't produce the equalizer despite a pair of power plays and goalie Scott Clemmensen going to the bench for an extra skater in the late stages.
The one constant in recent meetings between the teams is the games are tightly contested. Each of the last seven meetings have been decided by one goal.
