Nicklas Grossman with the first-game winner of his life (and just his second goal in the NHL) to beat the Wild in OT.
Dallas wins consecutive games for the first time since Feb. 19 and keeps hold of a playoff spot in the West.
That was a huge 2-0-0 homestand after losing Sunday (vs. Montreal) and Tuesday (at St. Louis).
This launches the Stars onto a crucial three-game road trip at Vancouver on Tuesday, at Calgary on Wednesday and at San Jose on Saturday.
Among the key points were two goals for Steve Ott, three assists for Loui Eriksson and 28 saves for Marty Turco.
It was a battle that the Stars needed, and they got it.
