Best of NHL: Tyler Seguin Keeps Stars Alive in Playoff Chase

NEWARK, N.J. -- Tyler Seguin scored on a power play 20 seconds into overtime and the Dallas Stars rallied to beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 on Sunday.

Ales Hemsky also scored a power-play goal with 6:36 left in regulation as the Stars came back to avoid being eliminated from playoff contention.

Kari Lehtonen made 20 saves for Dallas, including a stop on a short-handed breakaway attempt by Blake Pietila about a minute before Hemsky tied the game.

Blake Coleman, who was born in Plano, Texas, scored his first NHL goal for New Jersey. Keith Kinkaid made 30 saves.

The loss was the second in as many nights for the Devils and their 13th in 17 games (2-13-2). It also came just one night after New Jersey's playoff hopes were extinguished for the fifth straight year in a loss to Carolina (see full recap).

‘The full package' Connelly has interesting draft case for Flyers

Eiserman, ‘the best goal scorer in this draft,' an option for Flyers?

Jimmy Howard made the game-winning goal possible by making one of his 24 saves.

Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist got the rebound and made a long pass to set up Athanasiou, who faked out Devan Dubnyk with a move before flipping the puck in the net.

The Wild have lost eight of nine and are 3-10-1 in March. They still clinched a playoff spot late Saturday night when the Los Angeles Kings lost to the New York Rangers. The Wild extended their postseason streak to five under first-year coach Bruce Boudreau.

Mike Green and Tomas Tatar also scored for Detroit.

Dubnyk finished with 19 saves and Eric Staal and Nate Prosser scored for Minnesota (see full recap).

Hutchinson, Lowry lift Jets past Canucks
WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- Michael Hutchinson made 28 saves and Adam Lowry scored a power-play goal in the third period to lift the Winnipeg Jets to a 2-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday night.

Lowry scored the go-ahead goal with 8:13 to go, keeping the Jets mathematically alive in the playoff picture -- although one loss or one win by St. Louis the rest of the season would knock Winnipeg out of contention.

Mathieu Perreault also scored for Winnipeg.

Alexander Edler had the only goal for Vancouver, while Ryan Miller made 30 saves.

Lowry's goal came moments after Hutchinson stopped the Canucks on a short-handed, 2-on-1 breakaway. Blake Wheeler led the offensive transition the other way, and Perreault wound up with the puck, made a nifty move down low and fed Lowry in the left circle, where he fired a wrist shot over Miller (see full recap).
