Matt Duchene Lifts Stars to 4-3 Win Over Coyotes in OT


Tuesday was home sweet home for the Dallas Stars, who welcomed the Arizona Coyotes to the American Airlines Center. Matt Duchene scored a game-winning goal to lift the Stars to a 4-3 win over the Coyotes in overtime. Dallas improved to 11-3-1, while Arizona fell to 7-6-2.

Stars goaltender Jake Oettinger made 23 saves for a win, while Coyotes goaltender Karel Vejmelka made a whopping 30 saves in a losing effort.

The Stars’ starting lineup consisted of Nils Lundkvist, Tyler Seguin, Esa Lindell, Matt Duchene, Mason Marchment, and Jake Oettinger. Meanwhile, Dallas’ guest of honor Tuesday night was their former head equipment, Sudsy, who welcomed the boys in Victory Green and White onto the ice. Sudsy retired from his position at the end of the 2022-23 NHL season.

Contrary to popular belief, Arizona drew first blood on the road. Clayton Keller fired a wrist shot into Dallas’ net for an early 1-0 lead at 5:53 of the first period. Barrett Hayton collected the lone assist on Keller’s seventh of the season.

The Coyotes’ lead, however, didn’t last so long. Esa Lindell fired a wrist shot into Arizona’s net to tie the game 1-1 at 17:51 of the first. Nils Lundkvist and Joe Pavelski collected the assists on Lindell’s first of the season.

The Stars drew a penalty late in the third. Mason Marchment received a two-minute minor for hooking Barrett Hayton with 37 seconds remaining.

The Stars and Coyotes were tied 1-1 at the end of the first. Dallas edged Arizona 12-11 in shots.

The Stars opened the second period short-handed but successfully killed the 5-on-4 penalty. The Stars’ penalty kill is one of the best penalty kills in the NHL. To be specific, Dallas’ PK is a top-five one.

The Stars took their first lead of the game — and their first lead on home ice this season — midway through the second period. Roope Hintz fired a slapshot into the Coyotes’ net on the power play to give the Stars a 2-1 lead at 9:32 of the second. Miro Heiskanen and Jason Robertson collected the assists on Hintz’s sixth of the season.

The Stars took a 2-1 lead to the locker room at the end of the second. Dallas outshot Arizona 18-14.

The Coyotes evened the score in the third period. Jason Zucker scored a power-play goal to tie the game 2-2 at 12:11 of the third. Matias Maccelli and J.J. Moser collected the assists on Zucker’s third of the season.

The Coyotes regained the lead late in the third. Lawson Crouse fired a snap shot into the Stars’ net to help the Coyotes to a 3-2 lead at 14:26. Sean Durzi collected the lone assist on Crouse’s sixth of the season.

The vintage Tyler Seguin appeared late in the third. Seguin scored on a backhand shot to tie the game 3-3 at 16:40. Matt Duchene and Ryan Suter collected the assists on Seguin’s third of the season.

The third’s ending saw a game of inches, ended in a 3-3 tie, and went to the overtime period. Dallas outshot Arizona 32-24 after a full 60 minutes.

The overtime period didn’t last long. Matt Duchene fired a snap shot into the Coyotes’ net for the game-winning goal, just 41 seconds into overtime. Tyler Seguin collected the lone assist on Duchene’s sixth of the season. The Stars beat the Coyotes 4-3 in overtime. Dallas outshot Arizona 34-26 after 61 minutes.
