     The Florida Panthers dropped a 4-3 overtime loss to the Edmonton Oilers at Rogers Place on Wednesday night. The Panthers have lost the first two games of their road trip.
     Zack Kassian and Mark Letestu combined for two goals in the first period to give Edmonton(25-15-7) a 2-0 margin. Vincent Trocheck closed the gap for Florida(20-18-9) with his 17th goal of the season with 2:47 to go in the first.
     In the second period, Michael Sgarbossa got his first NHL goal during a power play at the 18:35 mark to tie the contest 2-2. The Panthers took their first lead of the game at 14:45 of the third period as Greg McKegg collected his third goal of the campaign.
     Edmonton fought back and make it 3-3 with 2:59 left in the third as Jordan Eberle put in a tally. The Oilers got the winning goal with two seconds remaining in overtime. Connor McDavid raced in on a breakaway put a shot barely over the goal line for the victory.
