ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jamie Benn scored 3:42 into overtime, giving the Dallas Stars a 3-2 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday, one night after teammate Rich Peverley collapsed on the bench.
Defensemen Alex Pietrangelo and Roman Polak ended lengthy goal droughts for the Blues, who lost for the first time in five games with new goalie Ryan Miller.
Colton Sceviour, among two call-ups by the Stars with Peverley out indefinitely and teammate Alex Chiasson also hospitalized due to emotional distress after his teammate’s “cardiac event,” scored on a power play in the first period.
Miller robbed the other call-up, Chris Mueller, with a glove save from point-blank range with 2:16 to go in the third. But he couldn’t corral a shot by Benn, the Stars captain, that gave Dallas its fourth win in five games.
