   Mark Streit had 2 assists, including on Giroux's OT game winner.  He registered 2 hits and a blocked shot in a team high 26 and half minutes of ice time.
      Claude Giroux scored on the second power play in overtime for the win in a wild see-saw event in Dallas.  The Flyers built a 2-1 lead in the first on two crash the net goals by Sean Couturier and Brayden Schenn.  The Flyers would give up 3 goals in the second period to go down 4-2 , including 2 a minute apart with under a minute and a half to go in the period. 
      The Flyers would come out in the third, and make the game look totally different.  Not necessarily better, but different.   With under 12 minutes to go, Andrew MacDonald would get his first regular season goal in a Flyers uniform.  A power play blast he would smoke by Kari Lehtonen.  With 5+ minutes  to go, Jake Voracek would get another scramble in front of the net goal to tie the game.  
     The wind would come out of the balloon when 30 seconds later Jason Spezza would score his first goal as a Star to give them a 1 goal lead with just over 5 minutes to go.  But the party was not over as the Flyers dug in, and Mike Raffl scored on an a pass attempt that was trying to find Giroux far side net, but found Trevor Daley's skate and shot passed Lehtonen.
       At the end of regulation Star's captain Jamie Benn would get called for putting his glove on the puck in the face-off circle with 3 seconds to go.  The Flyers would take that power play into overtime, but would come up empty with wild pressure.  Just seconds later, Trevor Daley tied up Brayden Schen going to the net when the puck came off the boards on a bad bounce and saved what would have been an empty net goal.  Claude Giroux would blast a side dasher bullet 5-hole in that power play for the winner, with Wayne Simmonds in front of the net distracting, but not blocking Stars goalie Lehtonen.
       Ray Emery would play the third period and overtime replacing Steve Mason.
       Stars Lehtonen is 0-13-2 all time against the Flyers, most of them when he was an Atlanta Thrasher.  Trevor Daley scored 2 power play goals, but he also had the puck go off his skate on Raffl's tying goal, and got the OT penalty that led to Giroux's game winner.
