    CHICAGO -- Bryan Smolinski scored his second goal 46 seconds into overtime to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 3-2 preseason victory over the Florida Panthers on Thursday night.

    Jim Vandermeer also scored for the Blackhawks. Rostislav Olesz and Denis Shvidki scored for the Panthers (0-4).

    Nikolai Khabibulin made 27 saves for Chicago (2-0) in his first preseason action.

    Smolinski ended the game when he took a loose puck off the boards, skated to between the circles and beat Florida goalie Craig Anderson to his glove side with a slap shot. Anderson made 31 saves for the Panthers.

    Smolinski was acquired along with left wing Martin Havlat from Ottawa in the three-team trade that sent Mark Bell to San Jose. Havlat made his Chicago debut Thursday, skating 28 shifts and putting two shots on goal.

    The Blackhawks went up 2-0 with two power-play goals. With a two-man advantage in the first period, Smolinski took a pass from Jeff Hamilton at the red line and flicked in a shot that ricocheted off Anderson's blocker four minutes into the game.

    The second power-play goal came in the second period when Hamilton took a pass from Rene Bourque and zipped a pass to Vandermeer, who sent a one-timer from between the circles.

    Florida's goals game in the closing minutes of the second and third periods.
