Trevor Borlace scored at 13:29 of the second period to complete a Dallas comeback from a 3-0 deficit on Saturday, but Dionne Demke gave OKC the lead back with 31 seconds left in the second period, and the Blazers kept it going with five unanswered goals in the third period to pull away for a 9-3 win.
