Robert Esche made 27 saves to get his first shutout of the season, leading the Flyers to a 4-0 win over the Panthers on Wednesday night.
Simon Gagne, Petr Nedved, R.J. Umberger and Jeff Carter scored for the Flyers.
Philadelphia completed a four-game season sweep of the Panthers but the previous three were all decided by one goal late in the game. Two were in overtime, one a shootout, and the other was decided with less than 4 seconds to play.
"We played a solid sixty minutes tonight," said Esche, whose last shutout was on March 20, 2004. "Tonight we put everything together. I didn't have to do much, the guys were awesome. It looked like a real Flyers game."
