On Monday night, the playoff-bound Florida Panthers won yet another game that went into overtime as Sasha Barkov’s power play goal lifted his team to a 5-4 win over the Dallas Stars.

Florida has been really good in overtime this season, winning 11 of 16 games decided in the five-minutes OT session and are 1-2 in the “skills competition” which is the shootout.

With the playoffs coming up later this month, one would surmise that Florida’s success in overtime will bleed over into the postseason.

If Florida is good in overtime during the regular season, well, it should be in the playoffs as well, right?
