Shootout goal by McCabe pushes Panthers past Oilers

Sep 25, 2008 - 4:20 AM EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- Defenseman Bryan McCabe made a great first impression with his new team.

McCabe scored in the fifth round of the shootout, lifting the Florida Panthers to a 3-2 preseason triumph over the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday.

Acquired from Toronto on September 2, McCabe made his debut with Florida in this one, recording one shot and a plus-1 rating in 32 minutes, 47 seconds of action. But the veteran played a pivotal role in the shootout as he slipped a backhander between the pads of goaltender Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers in the fourth round, giving the Panthers a 3-2 edge.

Chris Beckford-Tseu denied Dustin Penner on Edmonton's last chance, sticking out his right pad to make the save and clinch the victory.

Janis Sprukts opened the scoring just 1:49 into the game, but Shawn Horcoff netted a power-play goal with 41 seconds to go in the first period to forge a 1-1 tie. Exactly four minutes after Florida regained the lead at 8:03 of the second on Shawn Matthias' tally, Liam Reddox pulled Edmonton even during a man advantage.

Beckford-Tseu made 17 saves for the Panthers, while Drouin-Deslauriers turned aside 27 shots for the Oilers.
