SUNRISE, Fla. -- The Florida Panthers no longer fear overtime.

Olli Jokinen scored a power-play goal in overtime as the Florida Panthers defeated the Dallas Stars 2-1 on Thursday night.

Jokinen's shot from the point beat Mike Smith at 2:11. It was the third consecutive overtime win for the Panthers. The Panthers, who started the season 0-13 in overtime, have been in overtime in five of their past six games.

"I was just looking for a shooting lane," Jokinen said. "I just shot for the net because I knew Marty (Gelinas) was there to screen him and the goalie never saw anything."

Jozef Stumpel also scored for Florida. Ed Belfour stopped 33 shots.

"Overall, it was one of the better games we've played," Jokinen said. "It was a solid team game. Everybody showed up. That's what we need the rest of the year if we want to go anywhere."

Darryl Sydor scored a goal for Dallas and Smith had 34 saves. The loss snapped a three-game win streak for the Stars.

"The way the team has been playing lately, I think tonight's effort is one we'd like to have back," Smith said. "I just lost sight of (the puck) for a minute. He (Jokinen) has a pretty hard shot."

Dallas scored its first goal at 8:59 of the third period. Sergei Zubov brought the puck down the right side. Sydor took Zubov's pass from the right circle and his shot from in front beat Belfour to tie the score at 1.

"We gave them a break on that power play in overtime," Dallas coach Dave Tippett said. "Eddie (Belfour) made some big saves but I thought (Smith) made big saves, too."

Florida took a 1-0 lead on Stumpel's power-play goal at 5:38 of the second. Stumpel won a faceoff and shot the puck back to Jokinen. Jokinen passed to Jay Bouwmeester at the point. His shot deflected off the stick of Stumpel in front and past Smith.

"We still have a little hope," Stumpel said. "We've got nothing to lose, just go out there and try to win."
