Stars top Canucks, extend point streak to seven


  • Tyler Seguin had a goal and an assist for the Dallas Stars, who extended their point streak to seven games with a 4-2 win against the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena on Thursday.
  • Miro Heiskanen and Joe Pavelski each had two assists, and Anton Khudobin made 32 saves for the Stars (10-8-2), who were coming off a 3-1 win against the Calgary Flames on Wednesday.

  • Dallas is 6-0-1 during its point streak and 9-1-1 in its past 11 games after starting the season 1-7-1.

“You like adversity sometimes,” Seguin said. “I don’t think anybody likes 1-7-1, but we’re rallying around each other, we’re having complete team efforts last night and tonight. It’s hard to ask for better road wins than those.”

  • Jake Virtanen and Troy Stecher scored, and Jacob Markstrom made 25 saves for the Canucks (10-7-3), who are 1-4-1 in their past six games.

“They play with a lot of grit,” Canucks captain Bo Horvat said. “We turned too many pucks over and they capitalized. If we are going to play a team like that, we have to be willing to play direct, stick to our game and wear them down.”

  • Seguin gave Dallas a 3-2 lead at 18:29 of the second period on a rush following a turnover by Canucks defenseman Jordie Benn.
  • After Pavelski received a drop pass from Seguin in the left circle, he sent a pass to the slot to Heiskanen, who quickly redirected it with his backhand back to Seguin at the left post.
  • It was Seguin’s first goal in six games and second in the past 16.

“All goals feel good,” Seguin said. “That felt pretty good though.”
