Philippe Boucher scored with 39 seconds left in regulation and the Stars rallied from a two-goal deficit in the third period to match the best start in franchise history with a 5-4 victory over the Blackhawks on Friday night.
"It was a weird game, a roller-coaster for everybody in the building," Boucher said. "In the new NHL, it's never over and we kept pushing."
"You don't get goals like that without traffic in front," Philippe Boucher said.
Dallas is 13-0-1 in its last 14 meetings with Chicago.
The Blackhawks' last victory over the Stars was on Jan. 20, 2002, while their last win in Dallas was on March 7, 2001.
The 1996-97 Stars also won six of their first seven games.
"It was a monumental collapse," Brian Boucher said. "It's a terrible loss. It stinks to lose like that. Hopefully we'll rebound."
Martin Lapointe had given the Blackhawks a 4-3 lead with 4:31 left before the Stars' comeback.
Dallas trailed 3-1 and showed little life, but the Stars tied it on Mike Modano's power-play goal with 6:19 left and Lehtinen's even-strength tally with 5:34 remaining.
"It was like a boxing match going back and forth, they got one we got one," Dallas captain Brenden Morrow said. "We battled really hard. We're real happy with the two points. In the third, we deserved what we got."
Miettinen's deflection off a setup from Stu Barnes at 4:05 of the first period gave Dallas a 1-0 lead.
Chicago tied it on Kukkonen's blast from the left point at 15:51, 6 seconds after a Blackhawks power play had expired.
The Blackhawks grabbed a 2-1 lead on Bourque's power-play goal at 17:41 of the first period.
Hagman was awarded a penalty shot at 5:34 of the second period, and he appeared to beat Brian Boucher before his shot bounced off the crossbar.
Holmquist's power-play goal at 19:40 of the second period extended Chicago's lead to 3-1.
