Top line strikes again as the Panthers hold a 1-0 lead after two

The second period was marked by a flurry of activity on both ends of the ice, as both teams managed 13 shots on goal during the frame.

Shawn Matthias was driven, fighting for loose pucks and skating just a little bit faster than anyone on the Bolts.

Jose Theodore made two great saves, the second one with his head off of the stick of Teddy Purcell.

The Cats got on the board when Stephen Weiss blocked a shot and skated up the left side of the ice with Tomas Fleischmann on his right, feeding Flash with a pass on the tape which he put past a sprawling Mathieu Garon to put the Panthers up, 1-0.

Jack Skille led two odd man rushes in just under a minute near the end of the period, but the Cats could not add to their lead.

Tune in to see if the Bolts can come back to tie it up or if the Cats can put the Lightning away in what promises to be an exciting third period.
