After a scary-bad start -- allowing nine goals on 49 shots in two games -- Panthers goalie Tomas Vokoun has found his groove in South Florida, and his return to form didn't come a moment too soon.

On Tuesday night, Vokoun stole two points for the Panthers in a 2-1 shootout win over the Canadiens at the Bell Centre. The 31-year-old stopper turned back 36 of 37 shots, including all three shootout chances, to boost the outplayed Panthers to a come-from-behind victory. After surrendering a first-period goal to Habs winger Alexei Kovalev, Vokoun slammed the door and stopped numerous scoring chances to keep his team in the game.
