DALLAS -- Marian Hossa scored 1:41 into overtime as the Chicago Blackhawks (4-0-0) remained unbeaten with a 3-2 overtime win over the Dallas Stars (2-1-1) before 17,868 fans at American Airlines Center.
Hossa's goal came 1:41 after Chicago went on the power play for a seventh time in the game after Stars captain Brenden Morrow was called for interference 22 seconds into the extra frame. It was the Blackhawks' third power-play goal of the game.
Dallas took a 1-0 lead to the first intermission when Loui Eriksson scored a shorthanded goal with 1.4 seconds left. The Stars then had a great chance to double their advantage in the second period when Ryan Garbutt was awarded a penalty shot but his backhanded attempt was denied by Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford.
The Stars went ahead 2-0 at 10:41 of the second when Ray Whitney knocked a backhand past Crawford for his second goal of the year. But Chicago's Patrick Sharp made it a one-goal game at 15:57 of the second when he scored on the power play. Sharp's second goal of the year landed in the back of the Dallas net after deflecting off the stick of Stars' defenseman Trevor Daley.
Dallas nearly regained a two-goal lead with one second left in the second period when an Alex Goligoski slap shot looked poised to go in before Chicago's Duncan Keith cleared it away from the visiting goal.
