DALLAS – Trevor Daley and Jamie Benn scored power-play goals, Loui Eriksson added a third-period score and the Dallas Stars beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-1 on Friday night.
Eriksson gave the Stars some breathing room when he corralled Alex Goligoski’s cross-ice pass and fired a wrist shot past Anaheim goaltender Viktor Fasth with 7:14 remaining.
Goligoski added two assists for Dallas (6-5-1), which earned its third consecutive win.
Nick Bonino scored for the Ducks (7-2-1), who had won four in a row.
It was the first regulation road loss this season for Anaheim.
Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller left after the first period with a lower body injury. He made 14 saves, and Fasth finished with 11 stops.
The Stars’ power-play unit struck twice in the first period. It went 2 for 5 overall after managing just one goal on 16 opportunities over the previous five games.
Storm forces Bruins to adjust start time
The Boston Bruins pushed back the start of today’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning by six hours because of the blizzard hitting the Northeast.
The game scheduled for 1 p.m. is now to start at 7 p.m. The Bruins and Lightning each already had road games scheduled for Sunday night.
The storm is expected to clear the area by early this afternoon.
