SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) Steven Mason made 38 saves and Wayne Simmonds had a goal and an assist, helping the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Florida Panthers 3-1 on Tuesday night.

Nick Cousins and Dale Weise also scored for the Flyers, and rookie Travis Konecny and Brayden Schenn had assists.

Reilly Smith scored for the Panthers, who got 25 stops from Roberto Luongo.

The loss spoiled the return of Florida forward Nick Bjugstad, who had missed all of this season after an injury in the preseason.
