DALLAS - Eric Staal had two third-period goals and an assist to lead the Carolina Hurricanes over the Dallas Stars 6-4 on Tuesday night.
Carolina overcame a 2-0 deficit with four second-period goals. The last of those chased Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen from the game. He stopped 12 of 16 shots in nearly 36 minutes on the ice.
The Hurricanes franchise had not won in regulation at Dallas since 1996, when the team was the Hartford Whalers.
Carolina snapped a three-game losing streak and improved to 2-6-2 on the road. The Stars lost their seventh consecutive home game (0-5-2) and fell to 1-5-4 in Dallas this season.
Jeff Skinner, Patrick Dwyer, Victor Rask and Jiri Tlusty scored in the second for the Hurricanes.
