PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Jonathon Huberdeau and Peter Mueller both scored goals in a shootout to lead the Florida Panthers to a 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.

Florida's Stephen Weiss tied the game at 2 midway through the third period with his first goal of the season. Jack Skille also scored for the Panthers.

Matt Read and Jakub Voracek both scored goals for the Flyers. Read continued to have his way with the Panthers. Read notched his first career hat trick last month against the Panthers and his second-period goal against Jose Theodore was his sixth goal against them in six career games. He has 28 career goals.

Read was stopped by Theodore in the shootout. Claude Giroux also came up short in the second round.
