With recent history in the Stars' favor, coming out on top in Edmonton didn't seem to far fetched. The Dallas Stars put together their first set of consecutive wins, beating the Oilers on Wednesday night 3-2 in Over Time. Jamie Benn put 2 points (1 goal, 1 assist) on the board, Derek Roy scored his first goal as a Star, and Jaromir Jagr comes through clutch once again with the Game Winning Goal in OT.
First period: Though no goals were scored on either side, the Stars led in shots on goal 12-9; with what seemed like the best scoring chances coming from the Penalty Killing squad.
Second period: Ales Hemsky tallied the first goal of the game just over 3 minutes into the second period, after Lehtonen was back and forth in the crease leaving an open net.
Later in the period Jagr gets the puck to Benn, and scores with a little help from an Oilers skate. Tying the game at 1-1.
A questionable hooking call sent Hemsky to the box putting Dallas on the PP. With a little over a minute left in the period, Derek Roy reaches the net from distance. The 2-1 lead would hold as the period comes to an end.
Third period: Cody Eakin & Stephane Robidas are sent to the box for back-to-back penalties only a few minutes into the third. Oilers defenseman Justin Schultz scored on the Robidas minor to tie the game at 2-2
With the Oilers getting most of the chances and another Power Play in the period, things weren't looking good for the Stars. But they held on and guaranteed at least 1 point, sending the game to OT.
Overtime: None other than Jaromir Jagr scored the Game Winning Goal 1:46 into OT to give the Stars the 2nd point. As the Stars fans screamed in excitement at their TV's, Jagr "Shhh'd" the crowd to quiet them after the last buzzer sound.
