Matej Stransky, Jamie Oleksiak and Fraser scored in the second for Dallas and Carolina's Tyler Carroll ended the shutout bid 9:16 into the second, when the Stars opened a 7-1 advantage. Matt Carter closed out the scoring for the victors in the third and Victor Rask struck for the Hurricanes at 15:43.

Tyler Beskorowany stopped 16 shots to earn the victory in goal for Dallas while Matt Mahalek, who was pulled after two periods, turned aside 19 of 26 shots for Carolina.

Quote of the Day

Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
