Jonathan Huberdeau scored twice and James Reimer made 30 saves to help Florida beat the Buffalo Sabres 3-0 in the Panthers' home finale. Huberdeau scored his ninth goal on the power play at 17:03 of the second period after the Sabres — the top club on the man-advantage — failed to score on a pair of power plays earlier in the period. Huberdeau slipped in behind the goalie and backhanded the puck while inside the net just before the goal came off its moorings for a 2-0 lead. He added his second goal of the game when his blind backhanded shot to the right of Lehner banked in off the skate of defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen at 5:55 of the third period.
Nick Bjugstad also scored, and Jaromir Jagr had two assists for Florida. The shutout was the second this season for Reimer, who also blanked the Chicago Blackhawks in a 7-0 home victory two weeks ago.
Robin Lehner had 34 saves for the Sabres.
