Florida Panthers 6, Pittsburgh Penguins 5

Evgenii Dadonov records his first career NHL hat trick as the Florida Panthers held on for the wild win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Evgenii Dadonov scored with 1:53 to play to complete a hat trick and give the Panthers a 6-5 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night.

Dadonov beat goalie Matt Murray on a one-timer off Aleksander Barkov‘s pass for the winner.

“The old saying, your best players got to be your best players in games like this. He definitely was,” Florida coach Bob Boughner said. “He looked like he had it early. He has some great patience with the puck. It was a big goal at the end of the game, and he delivered.”

Dadonov has 18 goals this season.
