Jagr, Benn score in shootout to give Stars 4-3 win over Coyotes

DALLAS - Jaromir Jagr and Jamie Benn scored in a shootout to lift the Dallas Stars to a 4-3 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Friday night.

After netting four goals in the opener against Phoenix, the Stars had scored only nine times in the next six games before breaking out.

Antoine Roussel scored in his NHL debut, rookie defenceman Brenden Dillon had his first career goal, and Michael Ryder also scored as Dallas snapped a four-game losing streak (0-3-1).

Phoenix trailed 2-0 and 3-2 before getting even in the third period. Radim Vrbata had the only goal for the Coyotes (2-4-2) in the shootout.

Martin Hanzal scored twice in the second period after missing two games because of a lower-body injury, Vrbata added a goal and an assist, and Oliver Ekman-Larsson had two assists for Phoenix.

Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
