It was a good goal too as he ripped a twisted wrister past the veteran netminder from the slot. Thornton didn't, however, spend any time in the penalty box much to the dismay of everyone who plugged him in for just that. It was his first goal of the season and the 40th of his 623-game career.

While Wilson has 20 blocks through six games this season, and Thornton has 35 PIMs through 11 games, neither factor into a Panthers' team trying to not only be faster and more skillful but make the playoffs.
