Recap: Arizona vs. Dallas
Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Ryan Garbutt scored a short-handed goal with 1:16 to play to help the Dallas Stars snap seven-game losing streak with a 4-3 win over the Arizona Coyotes.
Tyler Seguin had two goals and Erik Cole also lit the lamp for the Stars, who last won a game on Oct. 24 in New Jersey. Kari Lehtonen stopped 33 shots in the win.
"It's a big win," Dallas head coach Lindy Ruff said. "I have to give the guys credit for fighting through it."
Connor Murphy, Joe Vitale and Mikkel Boedker all scored for the Coyotes, who have dropped their past two. Mike Smith allowed all four goals on 32 shots in the loss.
"We came out hard but you have to give them credit because they didn't give up," said Vitale. "Things were really back and forth there in the third and they got the last goal."
Arizona was given a power play with 2:10 to play after Patrick Eaves was called for high sticking, and Lehtonen kept it a tie game when he made a sliding save on a Boedker shot down low.
Garbutt then wound up with the puck and chipped it off the boards to get it out of his zone and past the man at the point. He caught up to the puck behind the defender and raced down the right wing, cutting to the front of the net before snapping the puck in with 1:16 left.
Arizona got Smith out of the net to spend much of the remainder of the game up two men, but was unable to get any past Lehtonen.
The Coyotes grabbed a 1-0 lead just 1:42 in on Murphy's second of the season, and took a 2-0 lead at 11:06 of the second as Vitale's wrister from the left wing found the left corner of the net.
Dallas got on the board at 17:59 of the second when Seguin finished off an extended sequence in front by banging in a rebound from the left side, and it was Seguin again less than a minute later on the power play with a wrister for his 12th of the season.
The Stars took a 3-2 lead with 4:41 to play after Cole snapped home the puck from the inside right circle, but Boedker finished off a rebound from the right side less than a minute later to again tie the game.Game Notes
