Dumba was given a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct for the incident. "Honestly, its hard to remember. I was going for that puck off the draw and I just fronted the guy," Dumba told TSN after being informed of the decision. "I know I went to hit him and might have just shifted sideways. I had no intent to do that hit, but obviously it was a penalty so just fortunate enough that they didnt give me a suspension."

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Ryan Nugent-Hopkins guessed right against Jose Theodore in the fourth round of a shootout. Nugent-Hopkins beat Theodore with a backhander for the only shootout goal in the Oilers 2-1 victory over the Florida Panthers on Friday night. "Most of the guys went to his glove side," Nugent-Hopkins said. "I just went down there and saw the backhand was going to possibly be open, so I just tried it." Ryan Jones scored in regulation for the Oilers, and Devan Dubnyk made 26 saves. The Panthers had a chance to win in the final seconds of overtime. Kris Versteeg had a shot from in front, but Dubnyk stopped the puck on the goal line, pinning it against the post with his left skate. "He made the move and I was kind of stuck and I couldnt really recover without pulling my leg off the post so I kind of had to just sit there," Dubnyk said. "Obviously, I got lucky with it going across the line there." Versteeg, who returned March 17 after missing nine games with an injury, hasnt scored a goal since Feb. 12 against the Islanders. "When youre playing that bad, it doesnt really matter. Youre not going to get the bounces," Versteeg said. "It was on the line. It almost went in."

He passed to Jordan Eberle at the top of the right circle, who passed to Jones to the left of the crease. Jones slap shot went past Theodore at 1:37. The Panthers tied it at 4:58. Tomas Fleischmann passed from the high slot to Garrison in the left circle and Garrison beat Dubnyk on the glove side.
