# 35 Brent Krahn -- Faced a lot of rubber and was screened on the only shot that got past him. A solid performance.
#4 Roman Hamrlik -- Spent a lot of time QBing the powerplay and looked comfortable doing it.
#8 Brad Ference -- Will have to show more to earn the seventh spot on the deep Flames defensive corps. Had a late scrap with Nathan Horton.
#21 Andrew Ference -- Did a good job winning battles while shorthanded.
#44 Rhett Warrener -- We would have liked to see one of his patented bone-crunching hits at the blueline but the vet had a quiet night.
#46 Mark Giordano -- A so-so performance from one of the few rookies with a legitimate shot at the NHL roster.
#49 Richie Regehr -- Broke up a 2-on-1 late in the game.
#15 Byron Ritchie -- Had a little chemistry with centre Jamie Lundmark while playing out of position on the wing.
#17 Eric Godard -- Threw his body around but was also a target for big hits from the Panthers.
#18 Matthew Lombardi -- Tried to make plays but may have been limited by his inexperienced linemates.
#19 Chuck Kobasew -- Opened the scoring and remained a threat all night.
#20 Kristian Huselius -- Back to his typical playmaking self, setting up Kobasew for the opening goal on the powerplay with a pretty pass.
#24 Jamie Lundmark -- Has a passer's vision and often looked to set up linemates Carsen Germyn and Byron Ritchie. Also let a few shots off from in close.
#37 Brandon Prust -- Dropped the gloves with a less-than-enthusiastic Anthony Stewart but wasn't on the radar much.
#39 Carsen Germyn -- Seemed to struggle with one-on-one battles but was at the right place at the right time to pot a powerplay goal in the second.
#41 Dustin Boyd -- Fit in nicely between Huselius and Kobasew, showing a knack for getting to open ice quickly and making plays.
#58 David Moss -- Lacked intensity for a young guy trying to make an impression. May have been a little overwhelmed.
#59 David Van der Gulik -- Doesn't look ready for the NHL level yet.
#62 Kris Chucko -- One of many who will benefit from time in Omaha adapting to the pro game. Memorable moment was sandwiching Anthony Stewart with Brandon Prust.
