DALLAS, Feb. 16 (UPI) -- Mike Ribeiro scored on a slap shot 2:01 into overtime Thursday, giving the Dallas Stars a 3-2 decision over Calgary.
The Stars ended a three-game losing streak and picked up two much needed points in their bid to earn a playoff berth. Dallas is two points out of a tie for the final post-season spot in the Western Conference.
Dallas never trailed, but twice let a one-goal lead get away.
Kari Lehtonen earned the win with 25 saves.
Miikka Kiprusoff stopped 28 shots for the Flames, who had won their previous two games.
