SUNRISE, Fla., Nov. 6 (UPI) -- Dominic Moore competed a Tampa Bay rally with a fourth-round shootout winner Sunday and the Lightning posted a 4-3 victory over Florida.

The Bolts trailed 3-0 after the first period but scored the next three goals, including the equalizer by Teddy Purcell 8 minutes into the final period.

After a scoreless overtime, the game moved to a shootout. Moore got the only goal in the tiebreaker when he stuffed a forehand shot past Florida's Jose Theodore.

Duane Roloson stopped Sean Bergenheim's wrist shot on Florida's final chance.

Roloson turned aside all 28 shots he faced in relief of starter Mathieu Garon, who allowed three goals on 12 shots in the first period.

Steven Stamkos had a goal and an assist, and Ryan Malone also scored as the Lightning won for the third time in four games.

Mike Santorelli, Brian Campbell and Tomas Kopecky each found the net and Theodore stopped 34 shots for the Panthers.
