Landon Bow had one of his best performances of his pro career, and Jason Dickinson was the OT hero as Texas beat Chicago tonight 2-1 in overtime. The rookie goaltender Bow stopped 31 of 32 including 19 first period shots en route to the win. The Stars only managed 3 shots in the frame, but neither side scored.

New addition to the Wolves roster Michael Leighton backed up Kasimir Kaskisuo, who was pierced twice on 20 shots for Chicago.

Texas broke the scoreless tie late in the second period with Matt Mangene finishing off a centering pass from rookie Max French. The Stars would take the 1-0 lead into the third period but saw it slip away on the penalty kill. Brandon Pirri notched his fifth of the year off the assist of two NHL calibre players in Jason Garrison and Teemu Pulkkinen.

It didn't take long for the final goal in overtime. Jason Dickinson beat Kaskisuo sneaking down the right wing side after beating Beau Bennett with a nifty move. The Stars moved above .500 with the win, setting their record at 9-8-1-1 as they approach two games in Cleveland on Friday and Saturday.
