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, who was a healthy scratch Wednesday in Edmonton, 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.
Dallas also outshot Anaheim 28-21, marking the first time this season that it had outshot an opponent.
Daley was strong at the other end as well, disrupting two different breakaways. He helped stop Corey Perry in the first period, resulting in an easy save for Kari Lehtonen, and Kyle Palmieri didn't even get a shot off on his opportunity in the second.
Lehtonen was excellent in goal, making 20 saves.
Wings make moves: The Detroit Red Wings have recalled forward Joakim Andersson from the Grand Rapids Griffins of the AHL. Detroit also placed goaltender Jonas Gustavsson on injured reserve.
Gustavsson has appeared in one game for the Red Wings this season. He played in Detroit's season opener at St. Louis on Jan. 19 before injuring his groin.
Andersson, who turned 24 on Tuesday, is in his third full season with the Griffins and has 10 goals and 17 assists in 36 games in 2012-13.
Injured Flames: The Calgary Flames have placed goalie Miikka Kiprusoff and center Mikael Backlund on injured reserve on Friday.
Kiprusoff was injured in Calgary's 4-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday.
Kiprusoff was added to the IR retroactively and is considered day to day with a lower-body injury. Backlund is expected to miss 4 to 6 weeks.
