Tampa, FL. -- The Florida Panthers rode their special teams to a convincing 7-4 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning, while spoiling the Lightning's home-opener in the process at the renovated St. Pete Times Forum on Monday night.

Florida produced six special-teams scores -- five power-play goals and one shorthanded -- to set a team record for the most special-teams goals in one game. To measure the effectiveness of the revamped Panthers' power play, consider this: Florida now has collected eight power-play goals on the season after four games. Last season, the team didn't record its eighth power-play goal until Dec. 9, during its 29th game.
