SUNRISE (CBSMiami/AP) — What looked to be a triumphant evening at home for the Florida Panthers quickly turned into anything but.
Vince Dunn scored with 3:53 left to cap a third-period rally from a two-goal deficit and lift the St. Louis Blues over the Panthers 3-2 on Tuesday night.
Aleksander Barkov put Florida ahead 2-0 with a goal 30 seconds into the final period, but Colton Parayko, Ryan O’Reilly and Dunn brought St. Louis flying back for its third straight win. Dunn beat James Reimer with a shot from the slot.
Jordan Binnington stopped 22 shots for St. Louis. Henrik Borgstrom also scored for Florida, and Reimer made 31 saves.
O’Reilly tied it with 8:51 left by finding the puck in the slot amid a net-front scrum and pushing it between Reimer’s pads.
Barkov scored on a power play, taking a pass from Mike Hoffman and poking it in from near the net. Parayko scored 3:05 into the period to make it 2-1.
Borgstrom also scored on the power play. He corralled a loose puck off a deflected shot and swept the puck past Binnington with 1:05 left in the first.
NOTES: Tuesday’s game was part of the Blues’ dads trip, and 20 fathers and grandfathers will also travel to Tampa Bay on Thursday.
