Plant 40, Chamberlain 0

TAMPA — Plant quarterback Phillip Ely passed for 131 yards and four touchdowns as the Panthers piled up 391 total yards of offense.

The Panthers' rushing attack put in a good effort as well, totaling 239 yards and two scores. Antonio Crawford and James Wilder each had a touchdown and combined for 143 yards.

Ely's favorite target was Allen Sampson, who finished with five catches for 94 yards and two touchdowns. Plant scored on its opening drive, capped by Ely's 11-yard pass to Sampson, and never let up.

Chamberlain, which had two players ejected in the second half, only mustered 102 yards total offense and five first downs against the tough Plant defense. The Chiefs were further hurt by two fumbles and an interception.

    It's Andy's time.

    And it's about time.

    Former Lightning captain Dave Andreychuk has been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame. He had been eligible since 2009, a ridiculously long wait for someone who scored 640 goals, including a record 274 on the power play.

    For Hall of Fame coach Scotty Bowman, Dave Andreychuk finally being part of a Hall of Fame class is especially gratifying.
