DALLAS, Dec. 31 (UPI) -- Steve Ott and Brenden Morrow scored less than four minutes apart midway through the second period to erase a deficit Tuesday night as the Dallas Stars extended their home unbeaten streak against the Edmonton Oilers to 15 games, 4-1.
Dallas took an early lead on a goal by Rob DiMaio at the 31-second mark, but Edmonton Coach Craig MacTavish immediately summoned the referee to point out a discrepancy in the Dallas lineup.
Stars coach Dave Tippett submitted a lineup card that had Ron Tugnutt as his starting goaltender. But when the first puck was dropped, Marty Turco was in net for Dallas, prompting the officials to wave off DiMaio's tally and issue a minor penalty to the Stars.
With Edmonton ahead, 1-0, Ott netted his first NHL goal at 10:19 of the second period and Morrow connected for his 11th of the season just 3:43 later to put the Stars ahead.
1-0 since a 4-3 loss on Jan. 17, 1996.
Anson Carter scored the lone tally for Edmonton, which has lost seven of its last eight contests.
