So much has transpired between the Panthers' season-opening 4-2 victory in Dallas to their rematch on Sunday. Unfortunately for these mostly unrecognizable, young Panthers, most of it has been bad.

However, despite their 15th-place status in the Eastern Conference, the Panthers have shown the ability to come back from two-goal deficits all season and they did it once again in a 3-2 victory over the Stars at BB&T Center to snap their five-game losing streak while impeding Dallas' march to the playoffs.

It's the first time in franchise history that the Panthers have swept the Stars in a two-game season series.

The Panthers came out flat for the first 30 minutes and trailed 2-0 before coach Peter Horachek chewed them out during a second period timeout. A couple of Jesse Winchester and Vincent Trocheck hits later, the ice tilted back toward the Panthers.

"It seems like we're a type of team that always gets going after we're down 2-0,'' said Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo, who notched 35 saves, none bigger than a pad save on a point-blank chance by Jamie Benn in the final minute.
