Panthers freeze out Penguins in OT

Posted: Thursday, November 07, 2002

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Valeri Bure scored at 2:19 of overtime as the Florida Panthers overcame a late goal by Mario Lemieux to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 4-3 on Wednesday night.

Bure took a pass from Kristian Huselius and squeezed the puck past Johan Hedberg on the right side for a power-play goal, ending the Penguins' four-game winning streak.

The Panthers appeared headed for a win in regulation until Lemieux, the NHL's leading scorer with 29 points, tied it at 3-all with 9 seconds left in regulation. Lemieux, who has scored at least two points in his last seven games, assisted on Dick Tarnstrom's goal to open the scoring.

Stars 4, Canucks 0

DALLAS -- Mike Modano had two goals and an assist, and Brenden Morrow scored on a penalty shot as Dallas handed Vancouver its first road loss. Marty Turco stopped 26 shots for his second shutout of the season and seventh of his career in helping the Stars improve to 4-1-1 at home.

Ulf Dahlen added a first-period power-play for Dallas, which improved to 4-2-2 in its last eight.

Senators 5, Avalanche 2

DENVER -- Marian Hossa scored three goals, and Daniel Alfredsson had a goal and two assists as Ottawa kept Colorado winless at home.

It was Hossa's second career hat trick, with his other coming Nov. 18, 2000, against Florida. Alfredsson has scored in all 10 of the Senators' games this season.
