The latest victory came Tuesday when Lyon stopped 39 shots and Florida beat Buffalo 2-1 to move atop the super-tight Eastern Conference wild-card standings. Florida has jumped from being outside the playoff picture to controlling its own destiny in these last four games — somehow, the first four-game winning streak all season for a club that had the NHL’s best regular-season record a year ago. The Panthers, right now, hold the first wild-card spot in the East with 87 points.
