The streaking Florida Panthers have showed no signs of slowing down after their defense did the heavy lifting in a 2-1 victory at Rexall Place against the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday night. The Panthers got their offense from Jonathan Huberdeau and Jaromir Jagr while Al Montoya stood tall in the nets with 24 stops. The Panthers have now won 12 in row and upped their record to 26-12-4 with some good fortune as Edmonton had a goal waved off.

Louis Dominique recording his second shutout of the season in his rookie campaign with a 26 stop effort as Arizona improved to 21-16-4 with win number three in a row. The loss went to Carter Hutton who made 25 stops with the Predators falling to 19-16-7.
