Dallas rallies for victory

©Associated Press
November 18, 2002

DALLAS -- Scott Young scored with 1:04 left then Pierre Turgeon tipped in a long swat by Young 3:19 into overtime to rally the Stars to a 3-2 victory over Columbus on Sunday.

West-leading Dallas won its fourth in a row with Turgeon scoring the winner in the past three. The Stars are unbeaten at home at 7-0-0-1.

The Blue Jackets appeared headed to their first victory in Dallas as they led 2-0 with goaltender Marc Denis, who made 39 saves, playing fabulously.

But Bill Guerin scored on a cross-ice pass from Mike Modano with 6:54 left. Then Young scored just after Dallas pulled Marty Turco for an extra skater.

Seconds earlier, Derian Hatcher made a stick save in front of the Dallas goal when Turco was caught roaming behind the net.

In overtime, Young took the puck from near the net and skated toward the blue line. He threw the puck at the goal, a seemingly harmless way to start a play.

And it squirted off Turgeon and into the net, setting off a huge celebration while Denis skated slump-shouldered to the locker room.

BLACKHAWKS 4, PREDATORS 2: Steve Sullivan scored twice, and host Chicago extended its unbeaten streak to six (4-0-2).

Boris Mironov's fluke power-play goal 8:03 into the game gave Chicago a 2-0 lead. His dump-in from center ice took an odd bounce off the side glass and caromed into an empty net. Tomas Vokoun had skated behind the net to play the puck and couldn't recover in time.

DUCKS 5, THRASHERS 1: Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 27 of 28 shots and Steve Rucchin and Paul Kariya had two assists for visiting Anaheim. The Ducks are 6-1-1-2 in their past 10, all with Giguere in net. During that stretch, he has allowed more than three goals once.

Atlanta goalie Milan Hnilicka made his first start since Oct.29 but was chased late in the second after giving up four goals on 20 shots. Hnilicka, who stopped all 17 shots in the third period of Atlanta's 5-1 loss to Phoenix on Friday, is 0-9 since March 14.

AVALANCHE 4, COYOTES 4: Mike Johnson scored the tying goal as host Phoenix rallied from a two-goal deficit. The first time the teams met, Colorado came from two goals down to win 3-2.

Coyotes goalie Brian Boucher made five of his 24 saves in overtime, when the Avalanche played the first 1:43 with a man advantage that carried over from Claude Lemieux's tripping penalty.
