DALLAS - The Canadiens closed out their three-game road trip with a 4-1 loss to the Stars on Saturday night.

Before things officially got underway at the American Airlines Center, Jonathan Drouin made one boy the happiest youngster on the planet.

During the pregame warmup, the 24-year-old forward was delighted to grant his wish.

It was a stalemate early before former Habs forward Alexander Radulov opened the scoring for Dallas with a power play goal.

Radulov's marker came at the 15:24 mark of the first period.

Dallas outshot Montreal by a 14-13 margin after 20 minutes.

There was only one goal to report in the second period. Unfortunately, it was Dallas that lit the lamp.

Right-winger Denis Gurianov beat Carey Price on a penalty shot with 1:11 remaining before the intermission.

Price did, however, make 13 saves during the middle frame alone to keep the Canadiens within striking distance.

Gurianov added a power play goal with 9:17 remaining in regulation to put the Stars up 3-0.

Then, defenseman Miro Heiskanen added an empty-netter.

But, Artturi Lehkonen did manage to get the Habs on the scoreboard with his second goal of the season.

The Habs will remain in Dallas overnight before flying back to Montreal on Sunday morning.
