Corey Perry scored his League-leading 10th goal of the season and assisted on Nate Thompson’s overtime winner to lift the Anaheim Ducks to a 2-1 win against the Dallas Stars. Dallas forward Antoine Roussel forced the extra period with his tying goal at 14:33 of the third period. It was the first game between the clubs since Game 6 in their Western Conference First Round in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, when the Ducks overcame a two-goal deficit in the final minutes of regulation before winning in overtime to eliminate the Stars.

* Perry (10-4--14) had his fourth multiple-point game of the season to move within one point of the League points lead, behind Dallas’ Tyler Seguin (7-8—15), Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby (7-8—15) and Philadelphia’s Jakub Voracek (3-12—15).

Jablonski ready for 'Night to Believe' with Wild

Friday, 10.31.2014 / 8:10 PM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - Staff Writer

Jack Jablonski is determined to turn a tragic event in his life into a reason to believe in miracles.

It was almost three years ago, in December 2011, when the then-sophomore was hit from behind while playing hockey for Benilde-St. Margaret's High School against Wayzata High during a game at a holiday tournament in St. Louis Park, Minn.

The check pushed him straight up against the boards and left Jablonski motionless on the ice. Following a 2 1/2-hour operation five days later, it was determined he had sustained a severed spinal cord in the neck. He was paralyzed from the chest down, and doctors felt at the time that it would take a miracle for Jablonski to recover full use of his arms and legs.
