Stars double up Coyotes, push win streak to 4 games

stars

Miro Heiskanen scored the go-ahead goal with 5:28 remaining and Jake Oettinger made 26 saves as the Dallas Stars won their fourth straight game, beating the Arizona Coyotes 4-2 on Sunday night in Tempe, Ariz.

Tyler Seguin and Matt Duchene each had a goal and two assists and Jamie Benn also scored for Dallas (44-19-9, 97 points), which is tied with Colorado in points for first place in the Central Division. However, the Avalanche have a game in hand.

The Stars also moved four points in front of the third-place Winnipeg Jets in the battle for home ice for the first round of the playoffs.

Clayton Keller and Nick Bjugstad both scored and Connor Ingram made 31 saves for Arizona (29-37-5, 63 points), which had a three-game home winning streak come to an end.

The contest was tied 2-2 when Duchene intercepted an outlet pass by Ingram in the right circle. Seguin then set up Heiskanen, who blasted a slap shot from the top of the right circle past Ingram’s glove side. It was Heiskanen’s first goal since Feb. 20.

Duchene sealed the win with an empty-netter with 1:30 left, snapping an 11-game goal drought with his 24th marker of the season.

Dallas took a 1-0 lead at the 4:21 mark of the first period on a one-timer by Benn from the top of the left circle. Benn has now scored in four straight games.

Arizona tied things at 1 with 1:16 left in the period on Keller’s 30th goal of the season. The score came off a long rebound of a Michael Kesselring shot, and Keller extended his goal streak to five games.

Keller also became the third skater in Coyotes team history with consecutive 30-goal seasons, joining Jeremy Roenick (1999-01) and Keith Tkachuk (1996-99).

The Stars retook the lead early in the second period on Seguin’s 22nd goal of the campaign.

The Coyotes drew even at 2 at the 7:26 mark of the third period when Bjugstad tapped in a rebound of a Lawson Crouse shot for his 18th goal.
