The Stars were whistled for two penalties in an 11-second span during overtime, first for too many men on the ice and then on a crosscheck by Esa Lindell against Marchand, and Boston eventually made the play to win.

Marchand took a pass from David Krejci after an assist from Torey Klug and beat Dallas goaltender Anton Khudobin low on the glove side for the game-winner. The victory was the first in three overtime games for the Bruins this year.

The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the Stars, who are 3-1-1 so far on their six-game road trip.
