Stars go OT to deny Red Wings and Chris Osgood


The Detroit

Chris Osgood is going to have to wait another game in his quest for 400 victories.

Osgood was just over three minutes from that milestone Sunday but the Red Wings couldn’t seal the victory and the Dallas Stars took advantage in overtime, defeating the Red Wings, 4-3.

Stars forward Loui Eriksson scored his 14th goal on a 3-on-1 rush with 42 seconds left in overtime to give the Stars the victory.

“For sure it’s disappointing,” said Osgood, who made 29 saves but was done in by turnovers in front him. “Especially at home. I’ve always said I don’t know when it’ll happen, you can’t plan for it. It just didn’t work out.

“You come so close and now you have to start all over again.”

Stars forward Brenden Morrow scored his second of the game and 12th of the season at 16:46, tying the score at 3.

Dallas forward Jamie Benn intercepted Brian Rafalski’s pass, found Morrow alone in front of the crease, and Morrow slipped a shot past Osgood.

“Obviously everybody knew what was at stake,” Rafalski said.

Osgood would have become the 10th goalie in NHL history to achieve 400 victories.
