Suter gives Blackhawks OT victory, sweep of two-game set with Stars


Pius Suter scored 2:15 into overtime to give the Chicago Blackhawks their third straight win, 2-1 against the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center on Tuesday.

Suter skated around Stars defenseman John Klingberg and shot off the left post and into the net for Chicago (6-4-4), which is 6-1-3 in its past 10 games.

The Blackhawks swept the two-game set. They defeated the Stars 2-1 in overtime Sunday.

Mattias Janmark scored, and Kevin Lankinen made 34 saves for the Blackhawks.

Roope Hintz scored, and Jake Oettinger made 27 saves for the Stars (5-2-3), who are 1-2-3 after a 4-0-0 start.

Jason Robertson stole the puck from Suter and sent a pass to Hintz, who scored on a backhand for a 1-0 Dallas lead at 4:57 of the first period.

Jamie Benn appeared to extend the lead to 2-0 at 4:10 of the second period when he lifted a shot into the net. The goal was disallowed due to goaltender interference after a coach’s challenge by Chicago.

Janmark tied it 1-1 at 14:04 when he tipped Dominik Kubalik‘s shot from the right face-off circle between Oettinger’s legs for a power-play goal.

Janmark signed a one-year contract with the Blackhawks on Oct. 12 after four seasons with the Stars. He has nine points (five goals, four assists) in 14 games.
