TORONTO (AP) — Dallas backup goalie Anton Khudobin made 30 saves to help the Stars beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1 on Thursday night.

Jamie Benn and Devin Shore scored, and Tyler Seguin added two assists.

Patrick Marleau scored for Toronto, and Frederik Andersen made 16 saves.

Coming off a 4-1 victory in Montreal on Tuesday night, the Stars opened the scoring midway through the second period just as a Toronto penalty expired. Seguin fired a shot from the top of the left faceoff circle that Benn tipped past Andersen for his fifth goal of the season.

The Stars made it 2-0 at 4:43 third on Shore’s goal off a feed from Mattias Janmark.

Marleau scored on a power play with 3:09 to go.

NOTES: Toronto defenseman Ron Hainsey played his 1,000th game. The 37-year-old was joined at center ice by his wife and three children for a ceremony before the opening faceoff. … Roman Polak and Connor Carrick, a pair of former Toronto defensemen now with the Stars, were honored with a video tribute during the first TV timeout. Carrick missed his second straight game with a foot injury.


Stars: At Washington on Saturday night.

Maple Leafs: At Pittsburgh on Saturday night.
