DALLAS (AP) — Vladimir Tarasenko scored 1:28 into overtime to complete a hat trick and the St. Louis Blues defeated the Dallas Stars 4-3 on Tuesday night.
Three times Dallas took one-goal leads in regulation play, and three times the Blues tied the score. The first two tying goals came within 37 seconds of Stars scores.
St. Louis had a 4-on-3 power play after Dallas’ Tyler Seguin went off for high sticking 14 seconds into overtime. Tarasenko took a pass from Alex Pietrangelo at the top of the right faceoff circle and fired the puck past Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen.
Tarasenko also had an assist on Jori Lehtera’s second-period goal as he recorded the first hat trick of his NHL career.
Dallas’ goals were by Jamie Oleksiak, Seguin and Trevor Daley. It was Oleksiak’s first career goal. Daley’s was his fourth this season on the power play.
St. Louis goalie Brian Elliott made 25 saves. Lehtonen had 23.
