When Jonathan Huberdeau and Owen Tippett took off moments after Spencer Knight made a big save this early in the Panthers game Monday night against the Dallas Stars, we all probably should have buckled in for a wild night of hockey.

Huberdeau scored a beautiful goal off Tippett’s pass less than two minutes in Monday and things just took off from there.

The Panthers scored four goals in the first period (well, one went in the wrong net) then Dallas scored twice in a span of 11 seconds to tie it in the third.

That all came before Sasha Barkov scored with 2:10 left in overtime to give the Panthers a 5-4 victory at BB&T Center.

It was one of those games in which Dallas pulled starter Anton Khudobin — who had been so good against the Panthers this season — and replaced him with rookie Jake Oettinger who made 27 saves before Barkov scored on a power play chance in OT.

It was also a night in which Florida’s  20-year-old rookie goalie gave up those two quick goals yet held on to make NHL history as Knight became the youngest to start a career 4-0.

Just another wild night in Sunrise, eh?
