Brenden Morrow was able to laugh about it after the game.

The Dallas winger overcame an own-goal to set up the tying and go-ahead scores in the Stars' 3-1 victory over the Calgary Flames on Thursday night.

``We can laugh about it now, but what an embarrassing feeling,'' Morrow said.

Late in the first period, Jarome Iginla lost control of the puck as he attempted to carry it in front of the net. However, as it bounced through the slot, Morrow, attempting to clear the puck, inadvertently fired it into his own net.

``I was just trying to clear it and I caught it a little thin,'' Morrow said. ``It's one of those things. It's the first time it's ever happened to me.

``I've seen it on highlights, laugh about it when it's other people but when it's you, it's a different feeling.''

Noting that the puck came to him off the stick of Morrow's Canadian Olympic teammate Iginla, Morrow quipped, ``We had some good chemistry, but just a week too early.''

Mike Ribeiro scored twice for Dallas, tying it at 1 with a power-play goal late in the second and icing it with an empty-netter directly off a faceoff.

Rookie Jamie Benn scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period, and Marty Turco made 33 saves.

``I've been around long enough and done enough things, good and bad, to be able to put things behind me. I know I have the most fun when we're winning and I'm playing well and giving these guys a chance to win,'' Turco said. ``Tonight was a lot of fun. Right at the end of the game, when you squeeze out a tight one in a tough barn against a team that's hungry and playing well.''

Dallas won the season series 3-0-1 and improved to 5-2-1 in its last eight.

``We've got to find ways to score goals,'' Iginla said. ``We've got to be good defensively, good in our own zone, and we have been for a long time, but we're capable of scoring more goals in here. We can't expect to win consistently 1-0 or 2-1 all the time.''

NOTES: Calgary is 2-6-1 in its last nine home games. Neither of Dallas' recent acquisitions - goalie Kari Lehtonen (trade with Atlanta) and right wing Brandon Segal (claimed off waivers from Los Angeles) were in uniform.
