Jones opened the scoring in the second period. Nugent-Hopkins grabbed a loose puck in the Panthers' zone and brought it down the ice. 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. With the goal, Garrison broke the Panthers' franchise record for goals in a season by a defenseman with 16.
