SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - Florida goalie Alex Auld made 26 saves to beat Atlanta 2-0 on Wednesday night and give the Panthers their first win of the pre-season.

Auld was shelled a week earlier by the Thrashers, allowing five goals on eight shots in a 6-3 loss on Sept. 20. He was acquired in the off-season in the five-player trade that sent former all-star goalie Roberto Luongo to Vancouver.

Auld made his best save in the first period when he stopped former Panthers captain Scott Mellanby from close in.

Martin Gelinas and Jay Bouwmeester scored second-period goals for Florida, which entered the game as one of only two winless teams in the pre-season along with defending Stanley Cup champion Carolina.

Atlanta dropped to 2-3.
