DALLAS (AP) Jamie Benn flicked in a goal 1:23 into overtime, lifting the Dallas Stars over the Minnesota Wild 3-2 on Monday night.

Benn took a cross-ice pass from Tyler Seguin in the left faceoff circle and shot over goalie Darcy Kuemper's right shoulder.

The Stars had lost five straight overtime games and nine in a row going back to last season. Their last overtime win at home was on Nov. 14, 2015 – also 3-2 against the Wild.

Dallas twice took one-goal leads, but the Wild answered each time.

The Stars' Jamie Oleksiak scored his first in more than two years on a rebound at 7:19 of the second period. Nino Niederreiter tied the game on the power play at 17:22 of the second.

Brett Ritchie gave Dallas a 2-1 lead at 1:01 of the third, but 3 minutes later, Erik Haula scored for Minnesota.
