Tim Stapleton For The Win

It's been a bit of a struggle offensively for former Bulldog Tim Stapleton this season. With the Atlanta Thrashers, Stapleton -- 18th all-time on UMD's scoring chart -- had just two points in 29 games before Wednesday night.

Despite that, he was on the ice in overtime of a crucial game against the Carolina Hurricanes in Raleigh.

With a chance to help his team win on a two-on-one rush with defenseman Ron Hainsey, Stapleton turned on the burners and got open in scoring position. Hainsey found him, and "Buster" made no mistake.

With the win, Atlanta is within five points of Buffalo and the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
