The Florida Panthers had Anthony Duclair back from injury but were without Carter Verhaeghe Tuesday night against the Dallas Stars.

They still had Frank Vatrano, however, and he scored yet another game-winning goal and lifted Florida to a 3-2 overtime win over the host Stars to snap a three-game losing streak.

It was Vatrano’s fifth game-winning goal of the season and his 11th scored either in the third or in OT this season.

“It’s huge especially late in the season,” Vatrano said. “We’re trying to move up in the standings, put ourselves in a good spot come playoffs.

“Any time you score a goal it’s an unbelievable feeling whether it’s a game-winner or a goal to put your team within reach.”
