CALGARY, Alberta (AP) Ales Hemsky scored twice in regulation, Tyler Seguin had the only goal in the shootout, and the Dallas Stars beat the Calgary Flames 4-3 Wednesday night for their seventh win in eight games.
Seguin got a shot past Karri Ramo in the first round of the shootout, and Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen was perfect against Joe Colborne, Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan to get the victory.
Jamie Benn also scored for Dallas, which pulled six points behind Winnipeg for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference.
Dereky Engelland got his first two goals of the season, and Gaudreau also scored in regulation for Calgary. The Flames remained third in the Pacific Division, one point up on Los Angeles – which is outside of a playoff spot.
