Edmonton Oilers 4, Dallas Stars 5 FINAL OT

DALLAS (AP) _ The Dallas Stars needed a wild comeback to maintain their dominance over the Edmonton Oilers.

Bill Guerin scored his second goal of the game 55 seconds into overtime and the Stars rallied from a three-goal deficit to beat the Oilers 5-4 Sunday.

The Oilers are 1-17-2-1 in Dallas since the Stars moved from Minnesota before the 1993-94 season. Edmonton's last regular-season victory in Texas was on Jan. 17, 1996.

``The Dallas Stars are not liked in Edmonton and for good reason,'' said Guerin, a former Oilers player.

The Stars extended their home-unbeaten streak to 11 games (7-0-4) by storming back from a 4-1 hole they fell into late in the second period.

Guerin pushed the Stars' home unbeaten streak against the Oilers to 16 games (15-0-1) when he scored his 27th goal of the season with a one-timer from the right circle off a behind-the-net pass from Pierre Turgeon.

``Turgeon has been great behind the net his whole career,'' Guerin said. ``He tells guys to get open and he'll find you and that's exactly what happened.''

Dallas' overall home-unbeaten streak is the longest current run in the NHL.

Edmonton got second-period goals from Raffi Torres, Fernando Pisani and Ryan Smyth to build its three-goal advantage.

But Brenden Morrow scored a power-play goal late in the second period, Philippe Boucher made it a one-goal game with 18:34 left, and Teppo Numminen drew the Stars even at 4 with 15:08 remaining in regulation.

The Oilers came away with a point for the overtime loss, but they had a chance to do better as they attempt to climb into the Western Conference playoff race. Edmonton is in 10th place with 17 games remaining.

``We didn't have composure, we started to panic with the puck,'' Oilers coach Craig MacTavish said. ``Two of the goals, guys are open in the slot uncontested in the most dangerous area on the ice. It's so unbelievably frustrating for everybody to see a game like that slip through our fingers. The clock is ticking and this overshadows what was a great effort by our team for most of the game.''

The Oilers were upset about a boarding penalty assessed to Jason Chimera at 15:42 of the second period, leading to Morrow's power-play goal.

``The power play at the end of the second turned the momentum around,'' MacTavish said. ``It was a great hit by Chimera. If he didn't finish the hit, we'd have been ticked off at him. It's just a bad call. But we couldn't kill the penalty. You expect your penalty killers to come through in that situation.''

Dallas' last successful comeback from a three-goal deficit was against Edmonton on Dec. 1, 2001. In that game, the Stars trailed 3-0 before winning 6-4.

The Stars capitalized on the first of five power plays 2:11 in when Guerin lifted a rebound over sprawling goaltender Tommy Salo.

Edmonton tied it at 1 at 12:17 of the first period on Steve Staois' shot from the point.

Torres' deflection at 1:11 of the second period gave the Oilers a 2-1 lead, then Edmonton capitalized on a mistake by Dallas goaltender Marty Turco for Pisani's short-handed goal.

Turco came out of his net to play the puck, but was unable to gain control. Pisani took possession and scored his 10th goal at 4:29 before Turco could slide back into position.

Smyth's goal from the left circle at 14:42 of the second made it 4-1.

Left wing Shayne Corson made his Stars debut, playing on the fourth line. The 37-year-old veteran of 17 NHL seasons had been working into game shape after signing as a free agent on Feb. 18.

Corson, who quit the Toronto Maple Leafs in the midst of the playoffs last season, got 8:05 of ice time.

``It was a lot of fun,'' Corson said. ``I was nervous those first two periods. I felt like I left my legs in Toronto, but in the third I felt like I got into a nice flow.''
