Justin Dowling scored 3:35 into overtime to give the Dallas Stars a 2-1 win against the Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center on Tuesday.

Roope Hintz gave the Stars a 1-0 lead on the power play with 40 seconds left in the first period. Starter Landon Bow made 18 saves on 19 shots for Dallas, and Colton Point made the save on all 13 shots he faced in relief.

Ryan Hartman scored a shorthanded goal at 14:43 of the second period to tie it for the Wild, who played their first preseason game. Hartman was traded to the Stars by the Philadelphia Flyers on June 24 but didn't receive a qualifying offer as a restricted free agent, making him an unrestricted free agent, and he signed a two-year contract with Minnesota on July 1.

Alex Stalock made 19 saves on 21 shots for the Wild.
