Jones gives up goals on Dallas' 1st 2 shots, Stars beat Kings 5-2

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn scored on Dallas' first two shots against the unbeaten Martin Jones and rookie linemate Valeri Nichushkin got the go-ahead goal on a power play in the second period, leading the Stars to a 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night.

Cody Eakin scored an insurance goal with 4:48 remaining against Jones, who stopped 19 shots in his first NHL loss.

Shawn Horcuff was credited with an empty-net goal after he was tripped from behind by Drew Doughty in the Kings zone. Kari Lehtonen made 30 saves to record his league-leading 12th road victory, sending the Kings to their second loss in 11 games and just their third in regulation over the last 23.

Justin Williams and Jarret Stoll scored first-period goals for Los Angeles. The Kings played without captain Dustin Brown, who missed his first game of the season due to an illness.

Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
