Marty Turco made 61 saves and Brenden Morrow scored on the power play at 10:57 into the fourth overtime period to lift the hometown Dallas Stars to a thrilling and gruelling 2-1 win over the San Jose Sharks Sunday night, moving them on to the next round of the playoffs.

Dallas clinched the best-of-seven series in six games — after nearly squandering a 3-0 lead — and advance to the Western Conference final where they will meet the top-seeded Detroit Red Wings.

San Jose was attempting to join the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs and the 1975 New York Islanders as the only teams in NHL history to erase a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series.
