Peverley's OT goal gives Stars 4-3 victory over Red Wings

DETROIT - Rich Peverley's goal at 4:41 of overtime completed a comeback and gave the Dallas Stars a 4-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night.

Peverley beat Howard on a wrist shot from the high slot.

Shawn Horcoff, Jamie Benn and Cody Eakin also for Dallas. Kari Lehtonen stopped 26 shots.

Todd Bertuzzi and Pavel Datsyuk each had a goal and an assist, Adam Almquist got his first career goal for Detroit, which lost its fourth straight at home. Henrik Zetterberg had three assists. Jimmy Howard made 24 saves.

Eakin's power-play goal at 18:50 of third, and with Lehtonen pulled to make it a 6-on-4 advantage, tied the game at 3. It was Eakin's fourth goal.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
