CHICAGO (AP) - Michael Ryder scored on a deflection with 5:02 left in regulation as the Dallas Stars rallied with three goals late in the game to defeat Chicago 3-1 on Thursday night, ending the Blackhawks’ four-game winning streak.
Tied at 1, Ryder got behind Chicago’s defense and redirected Mike Ribeiro’s shot between Corey Crawford’s left pad and the near goal post.
Dallas’ Loui Eriksson was credited with a goal 74 seconds later that made it 3-1. He scored after Ryder’s shot deflected off Chicago defenseman Brent Seabrook’s skate.
Dallas’s Steve Ott scored on a deflection midway through the third to tie it at 1.
Stars backup Richard Bachman made 26 stops in his first start since Feb. 2, a stretch of 11 games.
Marian Hossa scored Chicago’s lone goal and Corey Crawford finished with 22 saves.
