With Tim Thomas seemingly healthy again, the Florida Panthers are showing signs of competence. That continued on Monday, as they beat Philly 3-1, ending the Flyers’ latest winning streak at three games.

Thomas stopped a season-high 38 shots, only being beaten by Wayne Simmonds. The 39-year-old is almost at .500 individually, as he improved his record to 6-7-1 with a solid .914 save percentage and 2.66 GAA.

Sean Bergenheim was the other standout performer for the Panthers, scoring his first two goals of 2013-14.

The Flyers go back under .500 (10-11-2) tonight, but they’re still generally trending upward. Philadelphia has won six of tits last eight games, and this is the first time since Nov. 7 that the Flyers haven’t garnered a standings point.

    The Bruins sure have missed his ability to close out games.

    Hahah you said tits. Hats off to Thomas. Flyers threw everything at him and he answered back. That one goal wasn’t even his fault. He looked more like 29 instead of 39. He flat out won this game.

    I know it’d be easy to put the Flyers loss on Thomas, but we were flat for the first 2 periods. I’m not worrying. They had a home stand last week, got out on the road, and underestimated the Panthers after we beat them (Thomas-less) earlier this season when we were slumping. They better be awake in Tampa on Wednesday though. First real tough test since the Penguins. We’ll see how it goes. Go Flyers!

    Would have been nice to beat Florida, but Thomas played out of his mind. I still think the Flyers are a lot better then three or four weeks ago. They just could not beat Thomas. That is why hockey is so great. You can totally dominate the other team and take 39 shots, but a hot goaltender is the ultimate equalizer. I think they will bounce back against Tampa tomorrow night.

    this just proves any team can win on any night…granted it was a weak outing for the flyers but still. I think it will be a wake up call I would have rather them play like this against Florida rather than tampa
