Benn has goal and 2 assists to pace Stars to 4-1 win over Hurricanes

DALLAS - Jamie Benn had a goal and two assists to lead the Dallas Stars to a 4-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday night.

Kari Lehtonen made 29 saves for the Stars, who also got goals from Tyler Seguin, Brenden Dillon and Cody Eakin. The victory put Dallas (28-21-10) in eighth place, the final playoff spot, in the Western Conference.

Seguin scored 3:18 into the game, and Dillon gave Dallas a 2-0 lead with a short-handed goal at 6:13. Benn, who played for Canada's gold medal-winning team, assisted on both and then scored an unassisted, short-handed goal at 18:35 of the second.

Eric Staal scored for Carolina at 2:42 of the third period. Cody Eakin had an empty-net goal in the final minute.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
