DALLAS (AP) — Jani Hakanpaa and Joel Kiviranta scored during a frenzied two-minute span in the second period, and the Dallas Stars went on to a 4-1 victory over Winnipeg.
The Jets were still without new coach Rick Bowness. The 67-year-old former Stars coach tested positive for COVID-19 just before the season opener.
Tyler Seguin scored a goal for the Stars
Tyler Seguin and Miro Heiskanen also scored for the Stars. Mark Scheifele scored his third goal of the season for the Jets only 3 1/2 minutes into the game. That was the only of their 24 shots that got past Dallas goalie Jake Oettinger.
The Stars play next Wednesday night in Toronto against the 2-2 Maple Leafs.
