DALLAS (AP) _ Marian Hossa scored his NHL-leading fifth goal on a power play
1:41 into overtime to give the Chicago Blackhawks a 3-2 comeback victory over
the Dallas Stars on Thursday night.
 
 With Dallas captain Brenden Morrow in the penalty box for interference, Hossa
fired a one-timer from the slot past goalie Kari Lehtonen after receiving a
nifty, behind-the-back pass from Patrick Kane.
 
 Chicago’s high-powered offense, which racked up 14 goals in the previous three
games, needed the man-advantage to score all three Thursday night.
 
 Part of that was due to an outstanding performance by Lehtonen, who made 38
saves after coming within 3.4 seconds of a 39-save shutout Tuesday in a 2-1 win
at Detroit.
 
     STARS-BENN
 
     Stars sign C Jamie Benn to $26M, 5-year contract
 
 DALLAS (AP) _ Jamie Benn and the Dallas Stars have agreed to a $26.25 million,
five-year contract.
 
 The team announced the move Thursday night. The All-Star center gets $5.25
million each season, with the first year of the deal pro-rated because of the
NHL lockout.
 
 The 23-year-old Benn was a restricted free agent who set career highs with 26
goals, 37 assists and 63 points for Dallas last season. He played 19 games for
the Hamburg Freezers in Germany during the lockout this season, compiling seven
goals and 20 points before returning home to British Columbia in December.
 
 Benn is expected to arrive in Dallas early Friday morning and hopes to be in
uniform Saturday night when the Stars play St. Louis.
