DALLAS (AP) — Jason Robertson was just a footnote on a night that tied the Dallas record for points in consecutive games.

Marches that make history can do that.

Radek Feksa scored with 1:33 remaining, and the Stars erased a three-goal deficit in the final 10 minutes with a 6-4 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night.

After allowing a goal at 9:37 of the third to go behind 4-1, Dallas became the first team in NHL history to trail by at least three goals that late and win in regulation, according to STATS.

“They’re unforgettable both ways, but especially when you’re on the right end,” said first-year Stars coach Pete DeBoer. “When you’re on the wrong end of them, they don’t feel good.”

As for Robertson, he scored the first goal of the game to put him on a 13-game winning streak, even with Dave Gagner from the first season the franchise was in Texas after moving from Minnesota in 1993.

Then Robertson scored the last goal on an empty netter’s goal to finish the season third with five goals and extend Chicago’s losing streak to five games, all in regulation, while beating the Black Hawks for the fifth time in a row.

At that point, the crowd had already gone into a delirium, witnessing the first rally from behind by three goals in the third period in the NHL this season, and the first for the Stars since 2015-16.

said Chicago’s Seth Jones, who scored against his hometown team in the second period with three goals to erase a 1-0 deficit. “We just have to find a way to calm down.”

Less than a minute after Maxi Dumy led the Blackhawks 4-1, team captain Jimmy Bean scored for Dallas on a power play after Dumy was called for a fumble.

About four minutes after that, Mason Marchment and Ty Dellandrea clocked a 14-second run for even stars.

Dallas might have settled for overtime, but the Foxes sent a rebound into the net from a near-impossible angle along the goal line in the final two minutes.

Fiksa raised his arms as if he had scored, but the play continued. It was stopped shortly after, and replays showed the puck creeping under Peter Mrazek’s legs and crossing the goal line before being swept by Chicago forward Jason Dickinson.

“I wasn’t sure because I was kind of behind the goal line,” Faqsa said. “I knew at least half of the ball was there, but I couldn’t tell if it was all the way in. Immediately, when I came on the bench, they told me it was there.”

After Jones beat Chicago, Andreas Athanasio and Connor Murphy pushed the lead to 3-1 in the second. Captain Jonathan Toews got his 500th assist on Murphy’s goal.

The Central Division-leading Stars edged the Blackhawks 22-5 into third place, but all the pressure didn’t matter after Dumy’s fifth goal of the season.

“We kind of didn’t have the same work ethic and sat around a little bit and didn’t try to protect her,” Chicago coach Luke Richardson said. “We just didn’t handle it very well. In each target, it was probably something different.”

Robertson roll

Robertson, who started the night third in the NHL, scored 16 goals overall and 14 goals during the series. The 23-year-old has 10 assists on the run.

Four Minnesota-era players with the franchise have had longer streaks, including Brian Bellows’ record 20 player in 1986.

Dallas defenseman Jani Hakanpa wasted no time getting a penalty after Chicago’s Jared Tenordi leveled DeLandria with a slam dunk near center ice in the first.

Hakanpaa pushed Tenordi from behind as they skated into Dallas’ attack zone, where they dropped the gloves and traded several punches. There was no penalty for beating.

This was Jones’ first match since October 29. The defender was sidelined due to an injury to his right thumb.
