Oettinger stopped 19 of 23 shots in Monday's 5-4 overtime win against Chicago.
Things got off to a rocky start for the rookie, who found himself trailing 2-0 before the game was even 90 seconds old, but the Stars eventually came all the way back to make Oettinger a winner in the season finale.

Oettinger gave up four goals in his last outing for the first time since March 13. The rookie netminder owns a 2.30 GAA and a .914 save percentage in 28 appearances on the year. He's gone 0-1-2 against Chicago this season despite allowing just seven goals on 99 shots in four games.

The rookie's just 1-3-1 in his last five starts.

Oettinger was pretty solid in his last start Thursday against Tampa Bay, stopping 25 of 27 shots, but he ultimately suffered his 14th defeat of the season due to a complete lack of goal support from his teammates.

Oettinger was pressed into relief duty Monday, saving 27 of 28 shots in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Panthers.
The Stars sparked a two-goal rally in the third period to force overtime, and the Panthers ultimately prevailed thanks to a converted power-play opportunity in overtime. Oettinger was hunkered down in the crease when Panthers captain Aleksander Barkov blasted a one-timer top shelf.

Oettinger made 25 saves in a 3-0 loss to the Lightning on Thursday.

Oettinger is 4-1-0 in his last five games with just nine goals allowed in that span.

Oettinger has been a bit unlucky this season. His statistics are impressive, as he's posted a .917 save percentage and a 2.22 GAA through 21 appearances, but his 7-5-6 record is less favorable.
