EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) -- Jaromir Jagr scored in overtime, lifting the Dallas Stars to a 3-2 victory over the injury-riddled Edmonton Oilers for their first winning streak of the season.
Jagr beat Oilers goalie Devan Dubnyk 1:46 into the extra period with a high wrist shot for his third goal of the season.
Jamie Benn and Derek Roy scored in regulation for the Stars, who improved to 5-5-1. Dallas has won two in a row.
Ales Hemsky and Justin Schultz scored for the Oilers, who were without three of their top four centers -- Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (day to day with a shoulder injury), Shawn Horcoff (broken knuckle) and Eric Belanger (broken toes).
Adding to their woes, center Anton Lander left the game in the first period with a foot injury.
The Oilers (4-3-3) are winless in their last four games.
There were few good chances in the first period, most of them belonged to the Stars while they were short-handed. Dallas had several odd-man rushes late in the first and almost converted on ...

Dallas Stars 3 - Edmonton Oilers 2
Jagr is my hero.
That revamped Stars top line has caught fire these past two games. Benn scored another goal and had another assist while Morrow also had an assist. Jagr only had an assist, the game winning goal in overtime and the wonderful shushing of the Oilers crowd. Who knows why this trio has...

Defenseman Ryan Whitney was supposed to be healthy and productive this season for the go-go Edmonton Oilers. The veteran puck-mover was supposed to regain his old playmaking form now that he has finally moved past chronicle foot and ankle problems.
Whitney showed his full promise two seasons ago when he scored 27 points during a 35-game span. But last season he slipped from plus...

Well, that game turned on a dime.
For about 58 minutes, the Vancouver Canucks slogged through a muddled effort that looked like they had left their skateguards on they way the Oilers were flying.
They had quite a few shots, but they were perimeter shots, and hardly quality chances. The Vancouver specials. And then Kevin Bieksa worked his late...
