Seguin has hat trick, 2 assists in Stars' 6-1 win over Canucks

DALLAS - Tyler Seguin had three goals and two assists to lead the Dallas Stars to a 6-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night.

Jamie Benn, Alex Goligoski and Ryan Garbutt also scored for Dallas, which built a 5-0 lead. Kari Lehtonen made 31 saves, and Benn and Rich Peverley each had two assists.

Seguin scored twice in the first period, and completed his hat trick at 12:53 of the third. His third three-goal game this season tied Bill Guerin and Mike Modano for the Stars record.

Vancouver's Zac Dalpe scored at 18:15 of the second period.

Dallas solidified its hold on the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference, improving to 9-3-2 in their last 14 goals.

The fading Canucks, 11th in the West, dropped to 1-10-1 in their last 12 and fell four points behind Dallas.

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.'
