PANTHERS 5, ISLANDERS 3

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP)—Scottie Upshall scored twice in the third period as part of a four-goal Panthers surge and Florida downed New York.

Upshall tapped the loose puck past backup goaltender Anders Nilsson, who started in place of Evgeni Nabokov. Upshall scored again at 15:26 on the power play to make it 5-3 for Florida. Tim Thomas made 35 saves for the Panthers.
