Daley and Benn score in 3rd period, lift Stars to 3-1 win over Senators

DALLAS - Trevor Daley and Jamie Benn scored third-period goals to help the Dallas Stars rally for a 3-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday.

Dallas snapped a four-game losing streak (0-3-1) and sent the Senators to their sixth consecutive defeat (0-5-1), tying Ottawa's longest skid this season.

Jordie Benn had two assists for the Stars. Cody Eakin had tied the game with a second-period goal. Kari Lehtonen made 26 saves in his second game since returning from a head injury.

Erik Karlsson scored for Ottawa in the first period.

Daley's goal came after Senators goalie Robin Lehner stopped Colton Sceviour's shot. Dallas' Ray Whitney retrieved the puck and passed it to Daley.

Jamie Benn reached 30 goals for the first time in his five NHL seasons.

Quote of the Day

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.

— Senators coach Dave Cameron after getting eliminated in the first round by the Canadiens
