Florida Panthers’ Bure Returns
SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) _ Pavel Bure returned to the lineup for the Florida Panthers on Wednesday night and wasted little time in scoring his first goal after a five-game absence.
Bure, who had been sidelined with a groin injury since Oct. 12, scored Florida’s first goal against the New York Islanders.
Bure worked his way from behind the net and scored at 2:55 of the first period, his fourth goal of the season. Bure, whom Florida acquired from Vancouver in a trade last Januray, had three goals and three assists in his first four games before the injury.
