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.
