Chiasson, Benn each score 2 goals to carry Stars to 5-1 victory over Flames

DALLAS - Alex Chiasson and Jamie Benn each scored two goals to lead the Dallas Stars to a 5-1 victory over the Calgary Flames on Thursday night.

The game was tied 1-1 when Chiasson took a pass from Ray Whitney and shot the puck into the upper right corner over Calgary goalie Karri Ramo at 11:11 of the second period.

At first, the shot was ruled no goal, but a review showed that the puck reached the net before bouncing out.

In the next 1:01, Benn and Brenden Dillon added goals to put Dallas on top 4-1.

Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen returned after missing five games on injured reserve because of a leg injury. Dallas (4-5) lost four of those five games.

Lehtonen made 28 saves against Calgary. Lee Stempniak scored a second-period goal for the Flames (4-4-2).

Quote of the Day

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
