SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -- Niklas Hagman scored twice and Roberto Luongo stopped all 32 shots he faced, leading the Florida Panthers to a 4-0 exhibition win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday.

Hagman beat John Grahame for a shorthanded goal 25 seconds into the game, after Jay Bouwmeester was sent off for interference 11 seconds after the opening faceoff. He added his second goal of the game midway through the third period.

Luongo stopped 16 shots in the third as Tampa Bay finished 0-for-13 on the power play.

Kristian Huselius put Florida up by two with a breakaway goal at 17:19 of the second. Rostislav Olesz made a fine pass to set up Huselius, who went in alone on Grahame and faked a slapshot before snapping a shot through Grahame's pads.

Grahame turned away each of the Panthers' first five power-play opportunities before he was beaten by Nathan Horton 11:25 into the third after Nolan Pratt was sent off for tripping.

Bouwmeester accounted for four of the 13 minor penalties referees Marc Joannette and Chris Lee called against Florida.
