Jordie Benn scored the game winner in the shootout and the Dallas Stars defeated the Ottawa Senators 4-3 Sunday.

The game had a number of twists and turns, but perhaps the most disconcerting for the Senators was the injury to goalie Craig Anderson.

With 1:32 gone in overtime, Anderson went down hard after being hit by Valeri Nichushkin. He was taken off the ice on a stretcher after he appeared to take a knee to the head.

Anderson faced 36 shots before Robin Lehner was forced into action. Lehner stopped two shots in overtime.

Antoine Roussel, Ray Whitney and Nichushkin scored for the Stars (6-6-2). Kari Lehtonen stopped 36 shots.

Lehtonen stopped Milan Michalek, Jason Spezza and Bobby Ryan in the shootout.

Ryan, Erik Karlsson and Jason Spezza scored for the Senators (4-6-4).
