By The Numbers: Panthers 6, Stars 3
Panthers By The Numbers takes a closer look at some of the
interesting stats that you may or may have not known about.

 
Panthers 6, Stars 3

4 – Getting the puck on the doorstep off a scramble, Mike Ribeiro made a nice move, putting the puck between his legs and into the top of the net for the 20th goal of the season 4:23 into the game. Four of those goals have come against the Panthers as Ribeiro recorded the hat trick on January 21st in Sunrise. Ribeiro, in fact, scored four straight goals for the Stars against the Cats.

6 – A Panthers streak was snapped against the Stars. With Ribeiro’s first period goal, the Panthers failed to score the first goal of the game for the first time in six games. The last time they didn’t score first was March 17th against Washington (3-0). Florida was 2-2-1 during the streak.

250 – Working on their second power play attempt of the night, the Panthers cashed in as Cory Stillman slammed home Stephen Weiss’ shot for his 16th of the season 8:04 into the second period. It was Stillman’s third power play goal in the last four games. The goal marked a milestone for the 14 year veteran as it was the 250th of his career.

97 – The tie didn’t last long as Ribeiro was at it again. The Dallas forward set up defenseman Matt Niskanen who’s blast got past Craig Anderson for his 6th of the year just 1:37 after Stillman scored.

59.5 – The Panthers had their share of giving up late goals lately. Saturday night, it was their turn to score their’s. Rushing up the ice, Weiss took a pass at the offensive blue line from Michael Frolik, skated in one-on-one with Marty Turco, deked the netminder and put it five-hole for his 13th of the season with just 59.5 seconds left in the period.

6.2 – When it rains it pours. Nathan Horton followed up Weiss’ goal just over 50 seconds later (6.2 seconds remaining on the clock) as he followed up his own rebound and hit the top of the net from a tough angle for his 20th of the season. The goal gave the Panthers their first lead of the game, a 3-2 lead going into the final period of play. It was Horton's fourth straight season registering at least 20 goals.

500 – Registering the second assist on Horton’s goal, Radek Dvorak reached a milestone, picking up the 500th of his career. Playing in the 970th game of his career, the 13 year veteran had 192 goals and 307 assists coming into the game.

4 (part II) – The Panthers took their late period push and kept the pressure on as Kamil Kreps scored the team’s third goal in just 1:58 of play, registering his fourth goal of the season as he beat Turco 58 seconds into the third. Funny enough, all four of Kreps goals this season have come on the road.

200 – Dallas would get to within 4-3 when Chris Conner potted his second of the year 12:27 into the third, but Jay Bouwmeester gave the Panthers a two goal lead once again as he walked in and beat Turco for his 15th of the season. That mark ties the franchise record for goals by a defenseman, in which he set last season. Going with tonight's milestone theme, Bouwmeester recorded his 200th point (picking up his 199th earlier on Weiss’ goal).

12 – With Turco pulled for an extra attacker, the Panthers found themselves down two men when Weiss went to the box for tripping with 38 seconds remaining. That didn’t mean much for the Panthers as Dvorak outhustled Brendan Morrison for the puck and put it into the empty net for his 14th of the season. The tally gave Dvorak four shorthanded goals this season, 12 in his career. That ties Tommy Fitzgerald for the franchise record.

5 – The Panthers got scoring from all over the place against the Stars as nine skaters had at least one point on the night. Five of those players had multi-point games. Stillman led the way with three points (goal, two assists) while Bouwmeester, Weiss, Dvorak and Horton had two points each (all with a goal and an assist).

72 – The Panthers held a slight advantage in the face-off circle overall (53% - 47%), but the duo of Weiss and Kreps dominated with their draws. The two combined to win 72% of their draws as Weiss won 11 of 14 (79%) and Kreps won 7 of 11 (64%). Where they were extremely efficient was in the defensive zone. Weiss went 5 out of 7 (71%) while Kreps won all four of his draws.
