NEW YORK (AP) — Ales Hemsky scored 1:02 into overtime as the Dallas Stars overcame a late tying goal by New York’s Chris Kreider to snap a three-game skid with a 3-2 win over the Rangers on Sunday night.

Hemsky snapped the puck past fill-in goaltender Cam Talbot for his ninth goal of the season to lift the Stars after being outshot by the Rangers 20-2 in the third period.

Kreider tied it with his 12th of the season, on the power play at 18:40 of the third.

Jason Spezza and Erik Cole each scored second-period goals for Dallas. Spezza opened the scoring on a 5-on-3 power-play for the Stars at 2:53 of the second period with his 10th goal of the season. Tyler Seguin and John Klingberg assisted.
