Watch: Ekblad sinks Stars after having earlier OT winner overturned
The Florida Panthers defenseman thought he netted the winner with about 44 seconds left in overtime. However, the officials reviewed the play and overturned that goal after determining the Panthers went offside.
But Ekblad wasn't done. The star blue-liner took a pass from Jonathan Huberdeau and shoveled it home on the backhand with 10 seconds left in the extra frame for the unquestioned winner.
Ekblad has collected 11 goals and 10 assists in 34 games this season.
The Panthers snapped a three-game losing streak with the victory. Florida and Dallas will meet again Sunday.
