Chiasson scores 1st NHL goal, Stars beat Ducks 3-1

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Alex Chiasson scored his first NHL goal, Lane MacDermid netted his second in two games since being promoted from the minors, and Eric Nystrom had a short-handed goal for the Dallas Stars in a 3-1 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.

Kari Lehtonen made 27 saves to help end Dallas' three-game skid. The Stars, whose four-year playoff drought is the longest in franchise history, are five points behind eighth-place St. Louis in the Western Conference. But Dallas would have to overtake four other teams that are separated by one point.

Andrew Cogliano scored for Anaheim, and Viktor Fasth stopped 22 shots in his third straight start. It was the third consecutive game between the teams in five days, following 4-0 and 5-2 wins by the Pacific Division-leading Ducks (25-8-5).

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.

— Stars forward Rich Peverley to "The Musers" radio show on The Ticket 1310 AM in Dallas
