Ryan Smyth scored both Edmonton goals on the power play while goaltender Dwayne Roloson allowed four goals on 24 shots.

Roloson, 15-15-2 with a solid 2.76 goals-against average this season, has lost his last five starts and has allowed a whopping 24 goals in that span.

The Panthers have been better lately in winning two straight and going 3-1-1 in their last five games.

Florida won its second straight with a 3-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Friday. Nathan Horton scored the winning goal while Ed Belfour stopped 32 shots.

Belfour has been sharp lately, going 2-0-1 in his last three starts while only surrendering five goals.
