Stars fall to Kings in OT, but pick up valuable point

The Dallas Stars didn’t win in Los Angeles Sunday night, but they picked up a valuable point in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Kings at Staples Center. The Stars, who overcame a 2-0 deficit in the game to get that point, still control their own fate in the Western Conference playoff race with three games remaining.

“We’ve been battling hard for a while here and that point is going to come in handy for us. We’ll take it,” said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan. “That was a tough, hard-fought game. I liked our compete level. We still control our destiny with the teams we have left to play.”

The Stars play at San Jose on Tuesday and then return home to play two of the teams they are battling for that final playoff spot – Columbus and Detroit. The Stars trail the Blue Jackets by three points, but have one game in hand. They are tied in points with the Red Wings, who have one game in hand on the Stars.

“We’re still in there,” said Stars defenseman Stephane Robidas. “We have Columbus and Detroit at home and San Jose on the road. It’s still right there for us.”
