Dallas Stars forward Jason Robertson hit the 40-goal mark for a second straight season and also scored the overtime winner in a 6-5 victory over the host Calgary Flames on Saturday.

Robertson scored twice to match his 41-goal output of last season.

"They put me out there to try to produce," Robertson said. "A lot of guys on this team are having fantastic seasons. It kind of bleeds into my game. That success translates from our team to individuals.

The 23-year-old Californian ended a see-saw battle at the Saddledome with 12 seconds left in OT.

Robertson cut in front of the net going forehand to backhand for the winner.

Overtime goal by Robertson gives Stars win over Flames
Jason Robertson's goal in overtime gave Dallas a 6-5 win over Calgary Saturday night.

"You give Robertson an inch, he takes it and he scores," Flames defenceman Rasmus Andersson said.

Joe Pavelski had a goal and two assists for Dallas (38-19-13) atop the Central Division.

Wyatt Johnston with his fourth in four games, Radek Faksa and Jani Hakanpaa also scored for the Stars.

Roope Hintz chipped in three assists and goaltender Jake Oettinger stopped 33 shots for the win.

Andersson - who is riding a four-game points streak - and defencemen Mackenzie Weegar each had a goal and two assists for Calgary (31-25-14), sitting four points back of the Winnipeg Jets in the Western Conference's final wild-card playoff spot.

Elias Lindholm had a goal and an assist, while Blake Coleman and Nick Ritchie also scored.

Jacob Markstrom stopped 20 shots for the Flames, who didn't so much gain an OT point but squandered again a chance for a precious two in their scramble for the playoffs this season.

No team has more overtime losses than Calgary's 15 so far this season.

"We just haven't scored the goal," Andersson said. "We have the looks. We not putting them in. It's obviously frustrating we've lost 15 games in overtime."

'It feels good to get one in their building'

Calgary took the season series with Dallas 2-1.

In contrast to the low-scoring, tight-checking playoff round between the Flames and Stars last season โ€” Calgary won the first-round series in seven games โ€” their three meetings this regular season were goal extravaganzas with a total of 31 scored.

"We had two losses to this team in our barn," Robertson said. "One especially we'd really love to get back. It feels good to get one in their building and get the two points."

The Stars scored twice in the first two minutes of the game.

Calgary's three unanswered goals in a span of six minutes 38 seconds in the second period gave the Flames a brief 4-3 lead before Robertson pulled the Stars even before the end of the period.

After two long-range Dallas attempts, Robertson converted the second rebound from the slot at 18:20 of the second period to knot the score 4-4.

Pavelski and Faksa gave the visitors a 2-0 lead before the two-minute mark of the game, but Lindholm countered for Calgary at 3:01.

"We did a good job climbing back in the game," Weegar said. "Battling down to the last minute, going into OT, it comes down to one play and we've got to start making that play."
