Antoine Roussel scores go-ahead goal to help Stars beat Coyotes 3-1 for 2nd straight win

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Antoine Roussel scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period, Kari Lehtonen stopped 26 shots and the Dallas Stars beat the Phoenix Coyotes 3-1 on Tuesday night in a key victory for their playoff hopes.

Shawn Horcoff also scored and Ryan Garbutt added an empty-netter for the Stars, who won their second straight game and moved within one point of Phoenix and two of Vancouver, which holds the final wild-card spot in the Western Conference.

Antoine Vermette scored his eighth goal in nine games and Mike Smith made 37 saves for the sluggish Coyotes, who were thoroughly outplayed in the final two periods.

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
