SUNRISE, Fla. - Tomas Vokoun made 29 saves, and Jay Bouwmeester had a goal and two assists in the Panthers' 6-0 win over the New York Islanders on Monday night, the pre-season finale for both teams.

Islanders defenceman Chris Lee was carried off the ice on a stretcher in the third period. He was injured when he was checked into the boards from behind by Rostislav Olesz. Lee, who has never played in a NHL game, stayed on the ice for several minutes after being hit at 11:02 of the third period.

A team spokesman said the 28-year-old Lee had movement, was conscious and was taken to a hospital.

Olesz was assessed a five-minute major and a game misconduct on the play.

Anthony Stewart scored his team-high third pre-season goal and had an assist for Florida. Brett McLean also had a goal and an assist, and Kamil Kreps, Olesz and Nathan Horton also scored. Ville Peltonen had three assists as the Panthers scored three power-play goals.

Islanders starting goalie Rick DiPietro made his first appearance of the pre-season and finished with 28 saves.

The Panthers ended the pre-season with a 3-2-2 record. Monday's game was their only one at home in the pre-season. The Islanders finished the pre-season 4-3.

Vokoun's best saves came in the second period when he stopped Richard Park on a breakaway in the first minute and later stuck out his leg to stop Freddy Meyer's tip from the goal mouth.

The Panthers entered the game 1-for-32 on the power play in the pre-season.

Olesz got the first power-play goal at 8:47 of the second period to make it 3-0. He tipped Bouwmeester's wrist shot from the top of the faceoff circle.

McLean and Horton added scores on the power play in the final two minutes of the game.
