TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 28 (UPI) -- Stephen Weiss found the net in the fourth round of a shootout Saturday, completing the Florida Panthers' 4-3 comeback win over Tampa Bay.

Tomas Vokoun allowed three goals on 37 shots but came up big in the shootout, stopping Martin St. Louis's bid to extend the contest with a tough wrist shot.

Teddy Purcell and Dana Tyrell gave Tampa Bay an early lead but it wasn't enough for the win.

Dan Ellis allowed three goals on 27 shots for the Bolts.
