Stars score three in 3rd to beat Coyotes

Dallas, TX ( – John Klingberg and Cody Eakin each scored in
the opening minute of the third period as the Dallas Stars stopped a seven-
game home losing streak with a 3-1 decision over the Arizona Coyotes.

Jason Spezza also had a goal in the final frame and Kari Lehtonen turned aside
25 shots in a much-needed result for the slumping Stars, who had dropped three
straight and won for only the third time in their last 13 outings.

Dallas had gone 0-5-2 since its only previous victory at American Airlines
Center this season, a 6-3 triumph over Vancouver on Oct. 21.

Lauri Korpikoski tallied on a first-period power play for the Coyotes’ lone
goal, with Mike Smith recording 24 saves in defeat.
