(SportsNetwork.com) - Martin Brodeur is expected to make his home debut for the St. Louis Blues on Monday night as they take on the Florida Panthers. They may want to start up a collection at the door in case Brodeur picks up another victory. Recently signed following an injury to Brian Elliott, the 42-year-old lost his first start with the Blues on Thursday, giving up four goals on 24 shots faced. He then relieved Jake Allen on Saturday in a matchup with the New York Islanders and stopped 14-of-15 shots faced as St. Louis rallied for a 6-4 win. It marked the 689th win of Brodeurs career and the first he has recorded with a team other than the New Jersey Devils. Brodeurs one-year contract with the Blues is worth only $700,000, but the deal does have a clause in which he gets an extra $10,000 for each point in the standings St. Louis records with him in net. That could end up getting costly if Allen struggles, not that St. Louis would mind paying it. I got a call from (Blues general manager Doug Armstrong). Were broke. Were down $20 grand. He was wondering if I couldve pulled him sometime in the third, joked Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock after the win over the Islanders. Allen gave up three goals on 12 shots in the first period, but the Blues rallied for three goals in the third frame to snap a two-game slide and split a four-game road trip. T.J. Oshie started the scoring in the third period, Paul Stastny followed with his second goal of the game and Vladimir Tarasenko potted his 17th marker of the campaign. Kevin Shattenkirk added a goal and two assists, while Joakim Lindstrom notched three helpers. St. Louis played without forward Alex Steen due to a lower-body injury and lost defenseman Carl Gunnarsson to an upper-body injury following a high hit from New Yorks Anders Lee. The Blues have won four in a row over the Panthers and Brodeur is 40-16-2 against them in his career with a 2.06 goals against average, .914 save percentage and six shutouts. The Panthers open up a three-game road trip following a 3-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday. Roberto Luongo made 26 saves and Nick Bjugstad had the game-winning goal to improve Florida to 4-1-1 in its last six games. We needed this one. It was the last game before a big road trip, said Luongo. You always want to end on a good night. I thought the boys played well tonight, especially in the third period. Brad Boyes and Tomas Kopecky also scored, with Kopecky snapping a 36-game drought without a goal. Im so happy its over, said Kopecky. Ive just got to play my game. Sometimes its frustrating when things arent going your way and youre not getting the bounces, but youve got to be patient and stick with it. Defenseman Aaron Ekblad added three assists for his first career three-point game. He is third among rookies with 17 points. Luongo is 15-11-1 with a 2.32 GAA, .917 save percentage and three shutouts in 28 career games versus the Blues, all but one of those starts. Jeff Bagwell Jersey

.com) - Virginia is for loving Latrell Scott.ORLANDO, Fla. -- Orlando coach Jacque Vaughn has been waiting for his team to put together a full game. The Magic did just that against a tired Lakers squad. Tobias Harris led the way with 28 points and a career-high 20 rebounds in Orlandos 114-105 victory over Los Angeles on Friday night. He had a lot of help. Arron Afflalo had 23 points and six assists. Jameer Nelson had 22 points and six assists. Rookie Victor Oladipo had 15 points, 12 rebounds and five assists as the Magic outscored the Lakers 59-40 in the final 21 minutes of the game. "We havent been great in the third quarter the last few games, but this time, we took a punch and didnt wilt," Vaughn said. "Our first unit responded and the guys who came in off the bench held up their end of the bargain. That was good to see." Harris performance was worth seeing. The third-year pro is starting to show he can contribute something more than offence to a team that needs a little more of everything from him to be competitive. Harris had 19 defensive rebounds as the Magic limited the Lakers to just two second-chance points in the game. "Its good to go out there and just collect misses and push it up the court," Harris said. "Just being in the right spots, making the right rotations and helping my teammates is the biggest thing for our team." The Lakers looked good for the half of the game, but their energy level dissipated after taking a 65-55 lead with 9:27 left in the third period. They were outscored 36-15 the rest of that quarter and never made a serious run in the final period. This was their sixth road game in 10 days and the travel showed. "The guys wanted to do it, but they didnt have the legs," Los Angeles Coach Mike DAntonio said. "We ran out of gas and when youre tired, youre not real smart. Thats what happened tonight. We didnt play with a lot of poise." Pau Gasol led Los Angeles with 21 points and 10 rebounds. The Lakers got 19 pointss and 14 assists from Kendall Marshall, 17 points from Jodie Meeks and 16 from Nick Young.dddddddddddd "I came here saying Im going to be tired today and I was," Young said. "Weve been fighting this whole road trip, but I can honestly say this is one of the games we let up a bit. We just lost that focus." The Magic held the Lakers scoreless the last 3:30 of the third quarter, scoring the final 11 points to take a 91-80 lead into the fourth quarter. The Lakers scored the first six points of the fourth period to cut the deficit to 91-86, but that was close as they would come. Orlando responded with an 8-0 run and never let the Lakers closer than six points the rest of the game. Harris had a double-double in the first half with 17 points and 13 rebounds, but it wasnt enough to give Orlando an advantage. Los Angeles countered with Marshall, who handed out 10 assists and scored seven points when the Lakers took advantage of shoddy Magic ballhandling to squeeze out a 55-53 lead. Los Angeles converted on all seven Orlando turnovers, getting 14 points off the giveaways and shooting 46.7 per cent for the half. When the Magic did hold on to the ball, they didnt have much problem with the porous Lakers defence. After shooting 60 per cent in the first period, and still trailing 32-28, Orlando used a 13-0 run to overtake the Lakers. Kyle OQuinns slam dunk off a feed from Oladipo ended the run and gave Orlando a 43-38 advantage. Gasol finally ended the Lakers drought, scoring on a pair of driving layups and Meeks followed with a 3-pointer to help the Lakers go in at halftime with a 55-53 lead.
