ANAHEIM, Calif., Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Eric Nystrom
touched off a string of four unanswered goals Wednesday that led the Dallas Stars to a 6-2 victory over Anaheim.
In a rare offensive outburst, Dallas scored three times in the final 6:04 of the first period to take control.
Nystrom, Vernon Fiddler and Jamie Benn scored those goals and Stephane Robidas added a power-play tally 7:14 into the second to give the Stars a 4-1 lead.
Sheldon Souray and Michael Ryder tacked on goals in the third period.
Dallas won its second straight after losing five in a row. The six goals the Stars scored against the Ducks equaled their entire output during the losing streak.
When the Stars ended their skid the victory came by a 1-0 score.
Kari Lehtonen picked up the win with 33 saves. All six goals came against Jonas Hiller on 26 shots.
