Blackhawks top Stars 2-1 in 11th round of shootout
November 29, 2013 (AP) – Ben Smith scored in the 11th round of a wild shootout and the Chicago Blackhawks finally beat the Dallas Stars 2-1 Friday night for their fifth straight victory.
Chicago’s Patrick Sharp and Dallas’ Rich Peverley had the only goals through the first 10 rounds of the tiebreaker. Each of them scored in regulation, too.
Sharp tied it 1-all at 7:21 of the third period. Peverley scored at 16:40 of the first.
Stars defenseman Stephane Robidas broke his right leg in the second period and was taken to the hospital.
While helping to kill off a Dallas penalty, the 36-year-old Robidas slid hard into the boards beyond the goal line. He stayed down on the ice holding his leg just below the knee.
