Sharks lose to Stars 5-4 in shootout
The Sharks blew a pair of two-goal leads during a game on Sunday that could have resulted in an NHL record.Jamie Benn scored the lone goal in the shootout and Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen denied Logan Couture, Dan Boyle and Brent Burns, all after the Sharks had two of the three shots taken in overtime to outshoot the Stars 36-33 after 65 minutes.The loss put a damper on the debut of Raffi Torres, a deadline-day acquisition from Phoenix who contributed two assists and was a disciplined, physical force on a newly-formed third line that included Pavelski and T.J. Galiardi.Tommy Wingels scored the lone goal in the opening period when he one-timed a centering feed from Couture that was intended for Patrick Marleau.Torres jarred Nystrom into an offensive-zone turnover and fed Galiardi, who scored on a perfect no-look backhand shot at 7:48 of the second.
