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 one of them when Cody Eakin had Dubnyk beat but hit the post. Edmonton broke the scoreless tie three minutes into the second following a mad scramble in front of Dallas' net. Nail Yakupov hit the post behind Stars starter Kari Lehtonen before Hemsky banked the rebound in off a defender. Sam Gagner had an assist to extend his point streak to 10 games. The sound of metal clanging rang out through Rexall Place with seven minutes left as Loui Eriksson hit the post behind Dubnyk, leading immediately to a rush by Yakupov, who also hit the post on his shot. A minute later the Stars tied the game as a shot by Benn appeared to deflect off Jeff Petry and into the Edmonton net. It was Benn's third goal in six games since ending his free agent holdout. Dallas went up 2-1 with 1:16 left to play in the second period as Roy blasted a shot from the point during a power play that found the back of the net untouched. It was Roy's first goal with the Stars. Edmonton tied it 2-all eight minutes into the third on a power play as Schultz let loose a slap shot from the point past Lehtonen. It was the third goal of the season for the Oilers rookie defenseman. The Stars return home to take on the Ducks on Friday. The Oilers start a quick two-game road trip on Saturday in Detroit. NOTES: It was the first of three meetings between the teams this season. The Star won all four meetings last season by a combined 14-4 margin, holding the Oilers to a one goal in each game. ... Stars D Alex Goligoski was a surprise healthy scratch. Goligoski is the Stars' highest paid defenseman at $4.2 million and is second on the overall team payroll behind Benna. ... With the three injured centers, Oklahoma City call-up Marc Arcobello made his NHL debut, playing on the Oilers top line between Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle. ... The latest injuries added to an already long list of hobbled players for Edmonton that includes Andy Sutton (knee), Ryan Jones (eye), Ben Eager (concussion) Mark Fistric (back) and Theo Peckham (hip) ... Stars F Ray Whitney is out with a broken foot ... The Stars came into the game having been short-handed a league-high 50 times this year.
