Benn’s OT Goal Gives Stars 4-3 Victory Over Canucks
DALLAS (AP) —Jamie Benn scored midway through overtime and the Dallas Stars rallied to beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 on Thursday night.
Patrick Sharp twice tied the game with goals for Dallas. The Stars have won two in a row by overcoming multiple-goal deficits.
Sharp's second score tied it with 4:35 left in the third period, erasing what had been a 3-1 Canucks lead. Jason Demers had scored about 5 minutes earlier.
Alexandre Burrows, Alexander Edler and Radim Vrbata scored for the Canucks.
Vancouver was held without a shot on goal for nearly 12 minutes to start the game.
Benn scored after skating out of the corner with the puck, shooting from just inside the right faceoff dot 2:28 into overtime.
The Canucks scored first on Burrows' penalty shot, the first awarded in the NHL this season.
