Trevor Daley scored on Dallas' eighth shootout attempt after Adam Burish tied it with 61 seconds left in regulation, helping the Stars beat Phoenix 3-2 Tuesday night for their second comeback victory over the Coyotes in two weeks.
Dallas rallied to beat Phoenix in a shootout after scoring with 27 seconds left on Oct. 10 and forced another on Burish's one-timer past Mike Smith.
Both teams scored just one goal in the first seven rounds while trading misses and saves, setting up Daley's backhand winner on his first career shootout attempt.
Shane Doan scored his 300th career goal and Raffi Torres had his first goal for Phoenix.
Sheldon Souray scored for the Stars and Kari Lehtonen stopped 33 shots in regulation.
The two teams without owners have had vastly different starts to the season.
Dallas is still awaiting league approval for its new potential owner, Vancouver businessman Tom Gaglardi, the only person to submit a bid to buy the team.
On the ice, the Stars haven't wasted any time getting things rolling.
Relying on sturdy goaltending and depth it didn't have a year ago, Dallas won six of its first eight games for just the third time in franchise history after missing the playoffs the previous three seasons.
Lehtonen has been the key to the Stars' season-opening surge to the top of the Pacific Division, going 6-0-0 with a 1.48 goals against average a .957 save percentage his first six games.
The Coyotes are in still-without-an-owner mode.
They were run by the NHL the previous two seasons and stuck around the desert for a third season when the City of Glendale forked over $25 million to keep the team in Arizona after a deal to sell the team fell through.
The Coyotes were able to shake off the uncertain ownership situation the previous two years, making the playoffs in both, but are off to an indifferent start this season.
Sporadic on offense and giving up too many chances in its own end, Phoenix came into Tuesday's game just 3-3 after holding on to beat the Ducks 5-4 on Saturday.
Phoenix was crisp against Dallas back at home despite a tiny crowd, getting some big stops by Smith in the first period and creating momentum on offense over the next two.
Torres scored his first goal with Phoenix, firing a tough-angle shot that caromed off Lehtonen and into the net early in the first period.
Dallas answered late in the period with its first power-play goal in four games, a slap shot from the left circle by Souray that sailed through traffic and over Smith's glove shoulder.
Phoenix picked up the pressure in the second period and went ahead 2-1 at 11:47 of the third, when Doan one-timed a pass from Whitney past Lehtonen on a power play.
But, just like they did the last time around, the Stars scored late in regulation to tie it. Burish got the goal, one-timing a pass from Mike Ribeiro to set up another spirit-killing win over the Coyotes.
Notes: This was the sixth straight one-goal game between the teams. ... Doan had gone four games without a goal after getting No. 299. ... Dallas has 499 goals as a franchise against Phoenix. ... Vernon Fiddler took two shots his first game with the Stars in Phoenix after spending two seasons with the Coyotes.

It's a classic case of the immovable object against the unstoppable force. On one side is a goalie with a spotless win record. On the other side is a goalie who hasn't allowed a goal in three games. Something has to give.

When Tyler Dellow digs, interesting things about the inner workings of the NHL come to light.
He appears to have scored another hit, the focus this time on the League's involvement with the Dallas Stars' ownership.

In some ways, the Dallas Stars are literally changing right before everyone’s eyes. Of course, it is less than 10 games into the Glen Gulutzan era and even after a homestand where the Stars came away with a trio of wins the club remains a ...
