Andrew Cogliano and Alexander Radulov had goals for the Stars, who fell short of pulling off a playoff spot-clinching win after erasing a 2-0 deficit in the third period. Dallas also saw its three-game winning streak stopped.

Schaller opened the scoring when he scooped the puck from behind the net and wrapped a back-handed shot around, poking the puck under Anton Khudobin’s pad 4:52 into the game. It marked the third goal of the season for Schaller, with all three coming against the Stars in games this month.

Baertschi made it 2-0 11:16 into the first, picking up the puck at the blue line, streaking into the offensive zone and sniping a wrist shot from the bottom of the faceoff circle. The shot beat Khudobin five-hole and marked Baertschi’s first point since returning from symptoms of post-concussion syndrome that kept him sidelined for 23 games.

Markstrom stopped every shot he faced through nearly 2 ½ periods before Cogliano beat him with a wrister 9:14 into the third period.

Radulov added another goal 14:11 into the final frame, sending a long wrist shot sailing toward the Canucks net. The puck appeared to bounce off Vancouver defenseman Troy Stetcher and in.

Tyler Seguin nearly ended the game with less than two minutes left, snapping a closer-range shot at Markstrom, who trapped the puck under his arm to force overtime.
