Recap: Dallas vs. Anaheim

Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Nate Thompson's goal with 2:30 played in overtime lifted Anaheim to a 2-1 decision over Dallas from American Airlines Center.

Corey Perry accepted a drop pass from Cam Fowler just inside the Dallas blue line, took one stride before making a hard stop below the left circle and hammering a shot towards the net. The puck deflected off Thompson and sailed by Kari Lehtonen to end the contest.

"Whenever you score a goal, a big goal, it's great. I was just going to the net and got my stick on it," Thompson said.

Perry added a second-period marker for the Ducks, while Frederik Andersen made 21 saves.

Antoine Roussel produced the lone offense for the Stars, with Lehtonen stopping 22 pucks in defeat.

"We are very fortunate to get a point," Stars head coach Lindy Ruff said. "The first 40 minutes was as poor as I've seen us play."

Perry provided the first goal of the contest with 3:15 to play in the second period, when he received a stretch pass from Francois Beauchemin in the neutral zone, skated up the right wing and scored on a long drive.

Andersen might have been bored keeping the Stars at bay and then maintaining that slim margin, as Dallas recorded just one shot in the middle frame.

The Ducks had a potential insurance goal with eight minutes played in the third period wiped out.

Tim Jackman broke in with a Stars defender on his back and flipped a backhander on net which Lehtonen stopped, but with the host netminder on his back and Jackman's momentum carrying him through the crease, a trailing Josh Manson pushed the rebound home. The call on the ice was to immediately disallow the score because the goaltender's ability to play the puck was impaired.

The hosts evened the score just as an Anaheim bench minor expired, with Roussel beating Andersen with 5:27 to play on a tap-in from the left side.
