Jagr scores twice for Stars in 5-2 win over Kings, Morrow gets go-ahead goal in 3rd period.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Jaromir Jagr had his first multi-goal game since opening night, Brenden Morrow got the go-ahead goal in the third period, and the Dallas Stars ended the Kings' six-game home winning streak with a 5-2 victory on Thursday night.

Jagr and Cody Eakin connected on power plays for Dallas' first two goals after penalties against Los Angeles defenceman Keaton Ellerby. Jagr converted a rebound of Jamie Benn's shot with 10:20 remaining, his ninth of the season and 674th of his career — 10th on the NHL's all-time list.

Jagr's three-game goal streak is his longest since his final four games of the 2007-08 regular season with the Rangers. The nine-time All-Star and 1999 MVP spent the next three years out of the NHL before returning last season with Philadelphia, and has 27 goals in 95 games since his comeback began.

Antoine Roussel completed the scoring with an empty-net goal.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
