DALLAS (AP) – Jamie Benn scored the overtime winner for the second straight game and assisted Dallas’ three regulation goals as the Stars beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-3 on Monday night. Benn scored on a pass from Jason Robertson at 2:44 of overtime. He scored 32 seconds into overtime Saturday to beat Detroit 2-1.
Joe Pavelski, Jason Dickinson, and Denis Gurianov also scored for the Stars, who have earned points in 10 of their last 11 games (8-1-2). Jake Oettinger made 29 saves.
The teams will complete a back-to-back at American Airlines Center on Tuesday.
Pavelski scored his NHL-high 12th power-play goal at 1:19, taking a shot off Hakanpaa after Hakanpaa and Dallas’ Jason Robertson collided, and Robertson landed on Reimer.
Dickinson scored his first goal since March 18 when a shot from the left point by Esa Lindell caromed off his right boot past Reimer. McCormick batted in the puck in midair following a backhand pass from behind the net from Morgan Geekie at 13:24 of the second period for his first of the season. Slavin followed 3:04 later with a wrist shot while defending by Dallas forward Andrew Cogliano, who was playing without a stick.
Gurianov fired a one-timer from the right circle 36 seconds after Slavin’s goal as Dallas regained the lead.
Hakanpaa’s slap shot from the high slot deflected Dickinson’s skate to tie the score 3-3 at 15:46 of the third period. NOTES: Robertson, with two assists, has an eight-game point streak to match a Dallas rookie record. … Hurricanes defensemen Dougie Hamilton played in his 600th career NHL game. … Geekie had two assists. … With Carolina forward Jesper Fast missing his second straight game with a lower-body injury, Carolina dressed 11 forwards and seven defensemen.
