Stars erase 3-goal deficit in 3rd, beat Blackhawks 6-4

Radek Faksa scored with 1:33 remaining, and the Stars erased a three-goal deficit in the final 10 minutes for a 6-4 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night.

 

As for Robertson, he scored the first goal of the game to give him points in 13 consecutive games, getting even with Dave Gagner from the first season the franchise was in Texas after moving from Minnesota in 1993.

 

Then Robertson scored the last on an empty-netter to finish a five-goal third for the Stars, who extended Chicago's losing streak to five games, all in regulation, while beating the Blackhawks for the fifth consecutive time.

 

Less than a minute after Maxi Domi put the Blackhawks up 4-1, captain Jamie Benn scored for Dallas on a power play after Domi was called for tripping.

 

About four minutes after that, Mason Marchment and Ty Dellandrea scored 14 seconds apart to get the Stars even.

 

Dallas probably would have settled for overtime, but Faksa sent a rebound toward the net from a nearly impossible angle along the goal line in the final two minutes.

 

Faksa raised his arms as if he had scored, but play continued. It was stopped soon after, and replay showed the puck sneaking under the legs of Petr Mrazek and crossing the goal line before getting swept out by Chicago forward Jason Dickinson.

 

After Jones got Chicago even, Andreas Athanasiou and Connor Murphy pushed the lead to 3-1 in the second. Captain Jonathan Toews had his 500th career assist on Murphy's goal.

 

The Central Division-leading Stars outshot the Blackhawks 22-5 in the third, but all the pressure didn't seem like it would matter after Domi's fifth goal of the season.
