Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn took full advantage of the weak defense effort of Calgary Flames on Wednesday night.
They helped each other and Seguin had 24 seconds in the lead while Dallas' stars survived their defeat in the third period and lead to a 4-3 victory. On the winner, Benn slammed the boxer in the slot where Seguin was wide open and scored perfectly in David Rittich.
"I simply knew he was already shooting," Seguin said. "I had a chance to play, and I saw a low glove open and said I had a chance in the slot where I would shoot again."
Rittich claimed that Benn had hindered him, but after a video review, the judges allowed him to reach the goal.
Benn was Captain Dallas, who took two less penalties in the third period, and the latter led to Johnny Gaudrea's goal at 9:41, which resulted in 2-2.
"He obviously played overtime with little guilt," Seguin said. "I'm happy to have worked hard. He is our leader and captain, and everyone is following him."
Benn's team led the tenth goal at 18:02, who managed the perfect food from Seguine, giving the visitors a lead of 2-1 to the third.
"I like to think that everyone follows me. I'm proud to be the captain of this team and I always try to do the right thing," Benn said. "When I do this, we have someone to follow."
Mark Giordan's goal at 10:51 third, briefly gave Calgary his first mark. But less than three minutes later, rookie defender Gavin Bayreuther scored with no help, shooting a shotgun of Rittich's past after Matthew Tkachuk handed over.
"We are fortunate enough to pull the match tonight," coach Flames Bill Peters said. "I did not think we were very good. I did not think our attention to detail was very good and our dedication was that it was not right where we should get two points."
The usual dangerous combination of Gaudrey and Sean Monah ended the night minus-3. It was on ice when Jason Spezza entered the slot unexplored and passed through Radek Faks behind Rittich in only 41 seconds in the game. And they missed coverage for overtime.
"Loss is bullshit, obviously, losing that, worse," Monahan said. "Go back to the game and get the lead, then bring them back and give them too much time. That's for us, that's for me, and I'm falling for it."
Dallas (13-10-3) jumped to four balls without any impact on the road. The stars complete a four-day trip to Vancouver on Saturday.
"It's important to get W," said Team Coach Jim Montgomery. "I thought our effort was great, our performance was bad. (…) The way the guys had dug up and continued to fight was pretty impressive. "
Garnet Hathaway, with his first in 16 games, also scored for Calgary (14-9-2). Flames are 4-1-1 in the last six and continue to lead the Pacific Division.
"We had full control when we took over the lead," Giordano said. "We gave them the level and we just got together with some bad games. Today it's hard to swallow, honestly, I thought we should win this."
Khudobin got the start again in the absence of Ben Bishop (the lower body), which is expected on Saturday after missing the last five games. The 32-year-old Russian also started on Monday in Edmonton, which halted 30 minutes in overtime 1-0.
He made 30 more saves to improve at 5-5-2.
Getting start over veteran Mike Smith, Rittich finished with 24 saves. It fell to 8-2-1.
