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 downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
