DALLAS (AP) — Roope Hintz’s second score of the game punctuated a three-goal flurry in 91 seconds and the Dallas Stars used four-goal outburst in the second period to beat the Los Angeles Kings 5-2 on Tuesday night.
Hintz opened the scoring 6:49 in with the first of three power-play goals for the Stars. The one-timer from the left circle followed Benn’s backhand pass from behind the goal line. The goal snapped an 0-for-14 drought for Dallas' power play.
Fiala tied the score at 5:21 of the second period off a rebound before the Stars’ blitz began.
Robertson’s power-play goal was a one-timer from behind the right circle. Seguin scored on a wrist shot in the slot, and Hintz followed 14 seconds later on a breakaway.
Kaliyev scored on the power play at 14:37 of the second to pull Los Angeles within 4-2, but Pavelski answered four minutes later on another man advantage.
Oettinger, who leads the league in goals-against average at 1.40 and is second in save percentage (.952), is expected to be sidelined for at least a week.
Stars defensemen Ryan Suter moved into third place in career games played by a U.S.-born defenseman at 1,290. He trails Chris Chelios (1,651) and Phil Housley (1,495).
Kings: At Chicago on Thursday to end a three-game trip.
Stars: At Arizona on Thursday to open a three-game trip.
