Bergenheim snaps tie in 3rd period, lifts Panthers over Stars

SUNRISE, Fla. - Sean Bergenheim scored with 4:31 left to break a third-period tie, and the Florida Panthers snapped a five-game losing streak in a 3-2 win over the Dallas Stars on Sunday.

Bergenheim put the Panthers ahead for good when he redirected Colby Robak's drive from the left circle into the net. Scottie Upshall and Brandon Pirri also scored for Florida, and. Roberto Luongo made 35 saves and beat Dallas for the first time in five starts.

Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn had goals for the Stars, and Kari Lehtonen stopped 21 shots.

The Stars still hold a one-point lead over the Phoenix Coyotes for the second Western Conference wild card spot.

Florida erased a 2-0 deficit on goals by Upshall and Pirri in the second period.

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
