This is not a recording: The Flyers lost in a shootout.

The Flyers almost always lose when the game goes into a glorified breakaway contest.

This time, they dropped a 2-1 shootout decision to Florida, as the Panthers' Dave Bolland scored the winner at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday night.

It was the Flyers' 10th straight shootout loss, including 0-5 this season.

"Some guys are good at shootouts, and some guys aren't," said coach Craig Berube, whose team had four shooters lose control of the puck in the shootout. "I mean, we work on it. It's got to be a mental thing more than anything right now."

The Flyers will hit the road on a negative note. They completed a 2-1-1 homestand, and they start a season-high, eight-game road trip - sandwiched around the Christmas break - on Saturday in Toronto.

"We got one point and again left another one out there," goalie Steve Mason said. "There were some good things and some bad things, but overall, we've got to up our intensity. We've got to create more."

"We're playing good defensively, but we have to create more opportunities offensively," Berube said after his team was outshot, 32-26.

Matt Read and Brayden Schenn could have won it in the shootout, but both failed to connect against Roberto Luongo. Jake Voracek was the only Flyer to score in the six rounds.

Bolland scored in the sixth round. Florida won its previous game, Tuesday, in an NHL-record 20 rounds.

Mark Streit had the best scoring chance in a Flyers-dominated overtime, but Luongo got his glove on his hard wrist shot from the left circle with about 1 minute, 30 seconds left. With 13 seconds remaining, he got his glove on Andrew MacDonald's blast.

With a little under nine minutes left in regulation, Mason robbed Brandon Pirri, making perhaps the game's best save to keep the score tied at 1-1.

Early in the second period, Voracek converted a behind-the-net pass from Pierre-Edouard Bellemare for his 12th goal of the season, knotting the score at 1. Voracek scored on a one-timer from deep inside the right circle. He has 38 points, which is tied with Dallas' Tyler Seguin and Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin for the NHL lead.

"I just tried to fight my way through to get the puck, and Jake did the right thing by stopping at the net, and he has a great shot," said Bellemare, who beat two defenders behind the net on the play.

Luongo complained that Zac Rinaldo (seven hits) was in the crease and interfered with him on the goal, but it fell on deaf ears.

The Flyers, looking disorganized, were fortunate to face just a 1-0 deficit after the first period. Their passing was atrocious, they continually lost board battles, and, at one point, they were being outshot, 12-3.

"The first period, we were not intense enough," said Bellemare, whose team was outhit, 9-4, in the opening period. "We picked it up in the second."

Florida, coming off the marathon 2-1 shootout win over Washington, took a 1-0 lead on ex-Flyer Scottie Upshall's fourth goal of the season. Tomas Kopecky's left-wing pass/shot deflected off Mason's blocker, caromed off Upshall's chest and into the net with 10:23 left in the opening period.

The Flyers, now 0-6-2 when Claude Giroux doesn't get a point, tightened their defense after the opening period. They have allowed a total of nine goals in the last six games, excluding empty-netters.

"It could have been a lot better," Mason said of the homestand. "We needed that extra point tonight. You get two points, and it becomes a good homestand. We can keep building on games, but we need more than just one point."
