Florida got goals from Colin White, Sam Reinhart, Eetu Luostarinen and Matthew Tkachuk. “It was a good game, ” Calgary coach Darryl Sutter said. “We fought back through a lot of adversity during the game. ”Tkachuk spent six seasons with the Flames before going to Florida in a trade for Jonathan Huberdeau and MacKenzie Weegar on July 22. Tkachuk scored with 6:14 left in regulation to make it 4-all and help force overtime. “It felt good to get it to overtime, ” Tkachuk said. “It felt like we were dominating them yet it was somehow 4-3. ”Ruzicka scored on a power play at 15:13 of the first period and Zadorov made it 2-0 with a goal 51 seconds into the second.
Florida tied it with two goals in the second – the first coming when Colin White stripped goalie Jacob Markstrom of the puck as he played it along the end board, took off and put it into the vacated net. Reinhart made it 2-all with a power-play goal from the slot off a pass from Tkachuk. Both Markstrom and Spencer Knight ended with 31 saves. “This was a tight, even game where I did not think one team had a long stretch of dominance, ” Florida coach Paul Maurice said. “It is one of those games that, 20 years ago, would have ended in a tie. And you would have thought that was right. ”WELCOME BACKThe Panthers honored both Huberdeau and Weegar with a video during a break in the first period.

Huberdeau was booed when he came out – and scored – in the second round of the shootout. Tkachuk returns to Calgary for the first time since the trade later this month. “I didn’t expect to have that many jerseys out there and that was cool to see that, ” Huberdeau said. “I’ve been here a long time and I think they gave me a great ovation, so that was cool. ”NOTES: Barkov returned to the Florida lineup after missing Thursday’s game against Dallas with an undisclosed illness.
