Panthers vs. Flyers: Huberdeau scores on a penalty shot

The Florida rookie made the most of his first career penalty shot.

Less than 24 hours after playing an insane, all-around-sloppy game against Pittsburgh, the Philadelphia Flyers were in complete meltdown mode Thursday night, and one of their many many errors led to young Florida Panthers star Jonathan Huberdeau getting his first career penalty shot. He made it count, and he made it pretty.

Huberdeau was selected third overall by Florida in the 2011 entry draft. He won a bronze medal playing for Canada at the 2012 World Junior Championships.

Heading into Thursday night's game, Huberdeau was the second-leading scorer for the Panthers, behind only Tomas Fleishman. Huberdeau had six goals and three assists over the season's first fifteen games. He scored fairly easily on Ilya Bryzgalov, who looked slow and tired all night long. Bryzgalov played last night for the Flyers in their wild game against the Penguins, and gave up five goals in that contest.

Florida led 4-0 after the first two periods of play.
