Florida Panthers 5, Toronto Maple Leafs 2, Final

Tyler Bozak (15) and Mikhail Grabovski (22) lit the lamp for Toronto. James Reimer continued his historical ineptitude against Florida, stopping 22-of-26 shots in defeat. In three games against the Panthers he has stopped 45-of-57 shots, a .789 save percentage.

Jose Theodore’s shutout streak was ended with just over a minute left to play in the second period at two hours and one minute. Theodore faced a total of 28 shots, stopping 26.
