Seguin's hat trick rallies Stars past Panthers @NHLdotcom

The Dallas Stars spotted the Florida Panthers a three-goal lead before Tyler Seguin's hat trick rallied them to victory at American Airlines Center.

Rocco Grimaldi and Scottie Upshall scored in the first period for Florida, and Quinton Howden's unassisted goal 2:25 into the second period made it 3-0. But Valeri Nichushkin and Jason Spezza scored 53 seconds apart to cut the deficit to 3-2, and Seguin tied the game at 14:10.

After Colby Robak put Florida back in front early in the third period, Seguin scored two power-play goals in a 2:08 span, firing the winner past Roberto Luongo with 4:18 to play.

Spezza, acquired by the Stars during the summer, had two assists to go along with his goal.

Stars goaltender Kari Lehtonen left the game with 18:11 remaining after a collision in the goalmouth. Coach Lindy Ruff said Lehtonen has a mild concussion.
