2001 Playoffs

Dallas vs. Edmonton

Jamie Langenbrunner scored 2:18 into overtime give the Dallas Stars a 2-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers.

Mike Modano also scored for Dallas, who has beaten Edmonton 13 straight times at Reunion Arena.

"There's a fine line between these teams right now and we're very fortunate to be on the right side of it," Stars coach Ken Hitchcock said. "We don't want it to stop. If it gets turned the other way, you never know, you might not be able to stop it."

Ryan Smyth scored for Edmonton, who lost to Dallas in the first round last year.

"Our goal coming in here was to get a game, and we still have that option open," Oilers coach Craig MacTavish said. "I don't think the loss tonight did anything to detract from our opinion of our ability to do that."
