Ryan Hartman knocked in a walk-off goal in the second overtime to lead the Minnesota Wild past the Dallas Stars 3-2 in Game One of the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs at American Airlines Center.

The Wild took a 1-0 lead late in the first with a power play goal from Kirill Kaprizov, but the Stars responded with two power play goals of their own early in the second. Sam Steel scored on a breakaway later in the frame to tie the game at two, and then Jake Oettinger and Filip Gustavsson stood on their heads for the next two and a half periods until Hartman's game-winner. Gustavsson made 51 saves in the contest, while Oettinger stopped 45 shots.

The Wild lead in the best-of-seven series 1-0. Game Two is in Dallas on Wednesday.
