Stars strike quickly to rally past Canadiens 3-1

Stars coach Ken Hitchcock said Tuesday morning that with the team now in the second quarter of the season, it is time to start focusing on results. The Stars got a positive result Tuesday night, defeating the Montreal Canadiens, 3-1, at American Airlines Center. [WATCH: Full Stars vs. Canadiens highlights]"I thought the game was great," Hitchcock said. "It was a playoff game. Two desperate teams. There's no room, there's no space, every puck battle matters. This is the way we are going to have to play to win."The win was the second straight for the Stars (11-9-1) and the eighth in their last nine games at home where they are 8-2-0 on the season.For a second straight game some line juggling by Hitchcock paid off. Hitchcock moved Jason Spezza onto a line with Tyler Seguin and Devin Shore, and that line produced all three Dallas goals including goals by Shore and Spezza 59 seconds apart late in the second period that gave Dallas a 2-1 lead they would not relinquish."Seguin's a shooter, I'm a pa ser, and Shore's got good legs," Spezza said. "It gives us three dynamics, and we did a good job of using each other and we got rewarded for it."Video: MTL@DAL: Spezza buries rebound on the doorstepThe Stars got a strong game from goaltender Ben Bishop who stopped 29 of 30 shots."He's starting to really come on," Hitchcock said of Bishop. "This has now been five periods Ben Bishop Jersey when he's been very impre sive. He looks like he's competing hard in the net and that's a good sign for us right now. We need it."Brendan Gallagher scored the lone goal, and Charlie Lindgren stopped 26 of 28 shots for Montreal which lost its fourth straight game and fell to 8-12-2."I think we still had a chance in the third. We mi sed some good scoring chances, a couple of pucks there in the crease," Montreal coach Claude Julien said. "For the most part, that's the disappointing thing about tonight, is those two quick goals again."The Stars had two chances on the power play in the first period but couldn't generate much. Both goaltenders had big stops. Bishop made a sharp glove save on a Max Pacioretty shot from the left circle. Lindgren denied Mattias Janmark on a close-range bid off the rush.Video: MTL@DAL: Shore wrists one glove side on the rushMontreal made a good push early in the second period and came close on a couple of chances including a Brandon Davidson shot that was tipped through Bishop, but Gemel Smith cleared the puck as it approached the goal line.The Canadiens broke the scorele s tie by cashing in on their second power play of the game. Brendan Gallagher scored off the rebound of a Charles Hudon shot at the 12:04 mark.Bishop came up big later in the period denying a quality bid by Nicolas Deslauriers off the rush to keep it a 1-0 game. Then the Stars struck for two quick goals late in the period to take a 2-1 lead and the Shore, Seguin, Spezza line produced both.Shore scored the equalizer with 1:36 left in the second, taking a pa s from John Klingberg and scoring from the left circle off the rush to make it a 1-1 game. Shore, who hadn't scored Valeri Nichushkin Jersey a goal in the first 19 games now has goals in two straight."It just goes to show, that's hockey. Sometimes it seems like it's impo sible and sometimes they come in bunches," Shore said. "Hopefully, if you work hard over the long term it works out. Right now, in the short term it feels good, feels good to contribute. I'm pumped we got a win after going down and showing resiliency - that's really good for us."Video: MTL@DAL: Smith clears puck away from the creaseJust 59 seconds after Shore's goal, Spezza scored to make it 2-1. As Spezza was getting knocked to the ice by Montreal defenseman Joe Morrow, he put home the rebound of a Seguin shot with 39 seconds left in the second."Just that one minute there," said Montreal defenseman Jordie Benn. "We played a good 39 minutes and then in that one minute they popped two quick ones. When you let up, even for a second, on a fairly high-skilled offense, they are going to capitalize."Montreal had 5:24 worth of power play time in the third period but could only generate two shots on goal on those opportunities.The Canadiens had a flurry of chances with just over six minutes left in the third including a chance off the rush where the puck got behind Bishop for the second time in the game and this time it was Stephen Johns who swept the puck away from the goal line.Seguin sealed the win with an empty-net goal with 26 seconds remaining.Video: MTL@DAL: Jordie lays a hit on his brother JamieNotesThe Canadiens outshot the Stars 30-29 and the Stars had a 61-56 advantage in shot attempts.Tyler Seguin led the Stars with five shots on goal and eight shot attempts.The Stars were 0-3 on the power play and 4-5 on the penalty kill.Dallas won 42 of 77 faceoffs (55 percent).
