Mark Scheifele scored 21 seconds into overtime as the host Winnipeg Jets snapped the Dallas Stars' four-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory on Sunday. Scheifele scored his seventh goal of the season off a two-on-one that he kept and drove past Stars netminder Anton Khudobin (26 saves) to help the Jets improve to 4-0-1 in their last five contests.

Down 2-1, Winnipeg tied the game just 1:52 into the third period when Andrew Copp drilled a Khudobin save of Tucker Poolman's shot into a gaping net. Mattias Janmark and Radek Faksa had second-period goals for Dallas, which was opening a four-game trek through western Canada. Despite the loss, the Stars are 7-1-1 over their last nine games.

It was a relatively uneventful first period until the Jets' Patrik Laine blasted home a one-timer for his first power-play goal of the campaign with 27 seconds left before intermission to give the hosts a 1-0 lead. Laine, who registered at least 30 goals in each of his first three NHL seasons, notched his fourth of 2019-20, and first since Oct. 10. He also has 16 goals in 14 career games against Dallas. The Stars, though, made it 1-1 at 5:22 into the second period. On the forecheck, Dallas' Jason Dickinson wrestled the puck away from the Jets' Neal Pionk behind the Winnipeg net, then found Janmark across the near slot, who drove one past Connor Hellebuyck (26 saves) to level the contest.

Dallas took the lead just past the halfway mark of the second when Faksa deflected in Esa Lindell's shot, making it 2-1 with 9:33 to play in the middle period. It was the third goal in two games for Faksa, who has recorded four of his seven points over the last three contests.
