DALLAS, Nov. 23 (UPI) -- Steve Ott completed a Dallas comeback by scoring 2:56 into overtime Wednesday, giving the Stars a 3-2 victory over Los Angeles.

The Stars faced a two-goal deficit heading into the final period but Jamie Benn scored 2:07 into the third to cut the Dallas deficit in half.

The tying goal did not come until 21 seconds remained in regulation. Loui Eriksson fired a slap shot past Jonathan Quick for his 10th goal of the season and Ott came through with the game-winner in overtime.

Dallas and Boston are the only teams in the NHL without an overtime loss this season.

The Stars won their second straight on the heels of a five-game losing streak. They began the contest one point behind Pacific Division co-leaders Los Angeles and San Jose.

Kari Lehtonen made 22 saves to get the win. Quick stopped 35 shots.

Mike Richards and Kevin Westgarth scored for the Kings, who have lost two out of three.
