Seguin’s overtime goal gives Stars 4-3 win over Canadiens
Mattias Janmark and Blake Comeau scored in regulation for the Stars (34-19-5), who trailed 3-0 before rallying. Joe Pavelski had two assists after missing two games with an injury as the Stars extended their winning streak to four games and improved to 6-1-1 in their last eight games.
Down three goals, the Stars scored twice within six minutes in the second. A giveaway by Marco Scandella to Pavelski led to Janmark’s easy tap-in at 9:05. And with time expiring on Armia’s hooking penalty, Seguin ripped a one-timer top shelf past Price at 15:47.
Dallas has scored a power-play goal in seven consecutive games.
Comeau completed the comeback for the Stars at 9:08 of the third when his shot from the blue line went off Scandella and changed direction.
The Canadiens were playing the second game of a back-to-back after dropping a 4-1 contest to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday.
Outscored 11-4 on their three-game slide, Montreal’s offense finally got going. Fighting to make the Stanley Cup playoffs, the Canadiens needed a fast start and they got it on Armia’s opener at 1:02. The Finnish winger scored on an easy tap-in off Max Domi‘s loose rebound in the slot for his 15th of the year.
Montreal made it 2-0 early in the second when Weal broke free of defenseman John Klingberg, skated in close, and deflected Nick Suzuki’s pass in the crease at 3:58.
The Canadiens increased their lead less than three minutes later when Cousins used Klingberg as a screen to beat Bishop between the pads on a fast break.
