DALLAS (AP) — Loui Eriksson's goal at 3:52 of overtime sent the Dallas Stars to their fourth consecutive victory, 3-2 over the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday.

Steve Ott carried the puck deep in the Vancouver end and passed to Trevor Daley at the left circle. Eriksson skated to the net and fired Daley's goal-mouth pass by Roberto Luongo.

Mike Ribeiro scored the tying goal for Dallas with 52.5 seconds left in regulation.

With goalie Kari Lehtonen on the bench in favor of a sixth skater, Ribeiro deflected Alex Goligoski's shot from the point for his 14th of the season.

Michael Ryder netted a power-play goal for the Stars, who hadn't won four in a row since Oct. 29 to Nov. 8.
