Turco went into the net for Chicago for 2. and 3. periods and did stop every SoG by the Panthers.

Vokoun let in 2 Blackhawks goal by Kane and Hossa respectively in the second.
Blackhawks could not convert any power plays, but really there were not many of these despite 2 refs.
Panthers offense was somewhat less than overwhelming, they managed 8 then only 4 and finally a measly 3 SoGs. On the other hand the Panthers' Penalty kill worked well for the 3 minor ones called.
Chicago had none called, despite the fact that twice IMO they should have received one.
Guess the refs did not 'see' anything amiss with Blackhawks' slashing and tripping!
Vokoun was outstanding and instrumental in allowing Florida to hang onto their 1 goal lead through 2 periods of rapid and furious Blackhawk badgering.
