It was the first time Bergenheim scored since March 20, 2012. He missed last season due to injury and was playing his 10th game this season.

Erik Gudbranson also scored for Florida, his first of the season.

Wayne Simmonds scored for the Flyers, and Steve Mason stopped 28 shots.

The Panthers have won three of their past five games and evened the season series against the Flyers at a game apiece.

Philadelphia lost for the first time in four games and the second time in their past eight. The Flyers failed to get a point for the first time in eight games.
