Tom Wandell scored at 2:12 of overtime to give the Dallas Stars a 4-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night.
Tampa Bay rallied from two goals down to send it to overtime, and Wandell ended it with a sharp-angle shot from the edge of the right circle off Loui Eriksson's pass.
Stephane Robidas and Jere Lehtinen scored power-play goals during a 71-second span of the second period, and Brenden Morrow added a third-period power-play goal to give Dallas a 3-1 edge.
But Dallas couldn't hold the lead with less than 5 minutes left in regulation as the Lightning tied it on goals by Steve Stamkos and Jeff Halpern in a stretch of 47 seconds.
Stamkos scored his 17th of the season on the power play at 15:06, and Halpern drew Tampa Bay even on a backhander off a rush down the left side at 15:53 of the third.
Former Tampa Bay star Brad Richards had two assists for Dallas.
Paul Szczechura also scored for Tampa Bay, and former Stars backup Mike Smith made 34 saves for the Lightning. Alex Auld stopped 25 shots for the Stars.
Both teams were weary after playing Friday night. The Lightning beat the New York Rangers at home 5-1 in one of their best efforts of the season, while the Stars lost 5-2 on the road to the Phoenix Coyotes in one of their worst.
Tampa Bay played its third game in four nights and sixth in the last 10. Dallas was in action for the seventh time in 11 nights.
The Lightning got the game's first goal at 6:18 of the second on Szczechura's wrist shot from the left circle off a 2-on-1 break following a turnover by Stars defenseman Matt Niskanen.
The Stars skated 5-on-3 when Robidas tied it at 1 at 15:44 of the second period with a one-timer from the top of the right circle.
Dallas had another 5-on-3 later in the second and the Stars grabbed a 2-1 lead at 16:55 when Lehtinen struck from the left of the net for his 499th career point just as the two-man advantage expired.
Morrow set up in front of the net and converted Jamie Benn's centering pass at 3:34 of the third period for Dallas' third power-play goal in its first four chances.
NOTES: Dallas' three power-play goals were a season-high and matched the most allowed by Tampa Bay this season. ... Richards has 25 assists in 26 games. ... The Stars recalled LW Fabian Brunnstrom from the AHL Texas Stars and activated C Brian Sutherby off IR. Brunnstrom was in the lineup while Sutherby was a healthy scratch. ...
