Stars shine to snap Red Wings' streak

THE Dallas Stars rallied for a 5-4 overtime victory against the Red Wings on Monday, with Trevor Daley scoring less than two minutes into the extra period to end Detroit's six-game winning streak.

Steve Ott's powerplay goal with three minutes to go in the third period forced overtime in a game that Detroit had twice led by two-goal margins.

"The way we responded tonight shows what kind of team we are," Daley told reporters.

"We're a good hockey team, and we've got to start showing it."

The Stars, mired in fourth place in the Pacific Division and desperately seeking a win, peppered Detroit netminder Chris Osgood with 49 shots, including 23 in the third period.

"We felt like we were going to ... be aggressive and throw pucks at the net, and good things were going to happen," Stars coach Dave Tippett said.

Dallas had not taken that many shots in a game in 12 years. "You can't underestimate desperation," Stars center Brad Richards said.

Detroit had beaten Dallas 6-1 at the Joe Louis Arena on Thursday.

The Red Wings scored the first two goals in this one and led 3-1 after the opening period but Dallas stormed back to level the contest when Stephane Robidas and Mark Parrish found the net in the second.

The Central Division-leading Red Wings regained the lead five minutes into the third on Pavel Datsyuk's 19th goal of the season before Ott struck to ensure an extra period was necessary.

Brian Rafalski, Tomas Holmstrom and Marian Hossa all tallied for Detroit in the opening frame with Nicklas Grossman scoring for Dallas. Hossa's powerplay goal was his 21st of the season.

Elsewhere in NHL action, it was: Lightning 3, Kings 1.
