Nate Thompson Lifts Ducks Over Stars 2-1 in OT

Nate Thompson scored 2:30 into overtime and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Dallas Stars 2-1 on Friday night.

Thompson tipped a shot by Corey Perry from the top of the left circle past Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen.

Perry scored Anaheim's first goal at 16:45 of the second period to quiet a crowd that booed him every time he touched the puck. Perry leads the NHL with 10 goals in 12 games.

Dallas had only two shots on goal during six power plays, but Antoine Roussel scored the tying goal 3 seconds after Anaheim's last power play expired.

Trevor Daley passed across the ice from the right circle to Roussel. He put the puck past Ducks goalie Frederik Andersen from the left doorstep at 14:33 of the third period.

Lehtonen finished with 22 saves. Andersen made 21.
