NHL ROUNDUP : Stars Come Through at the Last Minute

From Associated Press

For more than 59 minutes, the Boston Bruins thoroughly outplayed the Dallas Stars.

It was the final minute that killed them.

Guy Carbonneau's goal with 4.4 seconds left capped a three-goal flurry in the final 49 seconds as the Stars took advantage of a Bruin letdown for a stunning 6-5 comeback victory at Dallas.

"We were down, but we never hung our heads," said Star defenseman Kevin Hatcher, whose rebound goal with 49 seconds to play triggered the last-minute comeback from a 5-3 deficit.

Mike Modano's goal with 16 seconds left pulled the Stars even at 5-5.

Carbonneau then notched the game-winner, converting Mike Kennedy's pass from behind the net.
