Rich Peverley’s goal at 4:41 of overtime completed a comeback and gave the Dallas Stars a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday night.

Peverley beat Jimmy Howard on a wrist shot from the high slot.

Shawn Horcoff, Jamie Benn and Cody Eakin also scored for Dallas. Kari Lehtonen stopped 26 shots.

Todd Bertuzzi and Pavel Datsyuk each had a goal and an assist, and Adam Almquist got his first career goal for Detroit, which lost its fourth straight at home. Henrik Zetterberg had three assists. Howard made 24 saves.

Eakin’s power-play goal at 18:50 of third, and with Lehtonen pulled to make it a 6-on-4 advantage, tied the game at 3. It was Eakin’s fourth goal.

Datsyuk’s goal with 8:26 left in the third gave Detroit a 3-2 lead. He made a nice move at the slot before firing a wrist shot past Lehtonen. It was Datsyuk’s seventh goal.

Benn tied the game at 2, 4:08 into the third. He stole the puck from the Red Wings’ Darren Helm in the neutral zone, circled back to his own blue line and went end-to-end, made a move past Niklas Kronwall and put a backhand past Howard for his sixth goal.

Horcoff put the Stars on the scoreboard at 19:39 of the second period when he was left alone in front of Howard. It was Horcoff’s second goal.

Bertuzzi opened the scoring 7:44 into the second period with his fifth goal. Almquist, a rookie defenseman playing in his second game, made it 2-0 with 5:10 left in the second on a one-time shot from the slot.
