NHL: Dallas 5, Nashville 2

April 12, 2013 at 11:55 PM

NASHVILLE, April 12 (UPI) -- Alex Chiasson scored twice Friday and backup goaltender Richard Bachman made 26 saves in bringing Dallas a 5-2 victory over Nashville.

Ray Whitney and Erik Cole produced goals for the Stars 4 minutes apart in the opening period and Dallas went on to win its fourth in a row.

Both Dallas and Columbus moved within two points of Detroit for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Detroit picked up a point Friday in a shootout loss to Chicago.

Alex Chiasson had a goal in both the second and third periods for the Stars, whose bid to make the playoffs began to heat up after they traded away some of their top offensive players.

Nashville lost its fifth in a row with Chris Mason giving up all five goals on 18 shots.
