Lindell Scores 1:07 Into Overtime, Stars Beat Kings 3-2

DALLAS (AP) — Esa Lindell scored 1:07 into overtime and the Dallas Stars defeated the Los Angeles Kings 3-2 on Friday night.

Lindell, a rookie defenseman, skated in 2-on-1 on Kings goalie Jeff Zatkoff. Stars captain Jamie Benn eased a pass from the right side to Lindell at the left faceoff circle for his third goal this season.

Los Angeles fell to 6-1 in overtime. Dallas is 2-7.

Jeff Carter scored both Kings goals on rebounds. He connected on the power play in the first period and tied the game 2-all at 10:51 of the third.

Tyler Seguin and Radek Faksa scored the first two goals for Dallas.

Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen made 29 saves. Zatkoff had 28.

Dallas finished a five-game homestand 3-1-1. The Kings are 3-2-2 on a nine-game road trip.

Carter’s first goal followed an apparent Los Angeles goal that was disallowed and a short-handed breakaway by Benn that ended with a shot wide of the net.

The first shot that went past Lehtonen was called no goal because the Kings’ Tanner Pearson was in the paint and impeded the goalie. At 3:05, 54 seconds into a power play, Carter scored on the rebound of a shot by Pearson.

Seguin tied it at 1 just 43 seconds into the second period. John Klingberg crossed the blue line on the right and sent the puck to Jason Spezza in the slot. He passed to Seguin in the left faceoff circle, and he sent a wrist shot past Zatkoff.

Lehtonen stopped all 16 Los Angeles shots in the second period, including a breakaway by Pearson with 3 1/2 minutes remaining.

Faksa set up his own goal by intercepting a pass in the slot. Zatkoff stopped Faksa’s shot from there, but he was in position at the left of the net to put in a rebound.

Carter scored his second goal, his 19th this season, by skating in from the right side to scoop up the rebound of a shot by Devin Setoguchi.

NOTES: Carter has eight goals in the last eight games. … Setoguchi has 24 career points vs. the Stars, his most against any team. . Dallas LW Antoine Roussel and D Stephen Johns missed practice Thursday because of injuries and did not play against the Kings. With C Cody Eakin serving the third game of a four-game suspension, the Stars had only 11 forwards. . The Kings extended their streak of successful penalty kills to 26 over the last nine-plus games by stopping all three Dallas power plays. The Stars have scored only twice on 22 chances with the man advantage over the last seven games.
