    • Tanner Pearson scored for Los Angeles

      DALLAS (AP) — Jamie Benn wasn’t impressed with his 600th career point Adidas Matt Hunwick Jersey , or his 601st.Those two power-play goals, and three others by his linemates, were more than enough for the Dallas Stars to beat the Winnipeg Jets 5-1 on Saturday night.When asked whether he’d thought about 600, Benn answered simply, “No.”Tyler Seguin — who had two goals, one on the power play, and two assists — had more to say.“It’s great,” he said. “He’s a heck of hockey player. He deserves accolades like that.”Jim Montgomery has won his first two games as a head coach with captain Benn’s help.“That’s about 594 more than I ever had,” Montgomery said. “It just speaks volumes about what he’s done here in his career.”Benn entered the game with 598 points, and assisted on Seguin’s first goal for No. 599.Winnipeg had beaten Dallas eight straight times dating to Oct. 27 Adidas Jeff Skinner Jersey , 2016.Dallas dominated the first period with a 16-9 advantage in shots and two goals less than three minutes apart by Alexander Radulov and Seguin, the latter on the power play with Benn assisting.Benn scored power-play goals in the second and third periods, and Seguin scored in the third.“We didn’t give ourselves a chance to get going,” Jets coach Paul Maurice said. “In the penalty box too much early and not very effective on the kill here at all tonight.”The Stars’ top line accounted for all five goals and five assists. Radulov also had two assists.“You’ve got Seguin with the unbelievable shot,” Jets center Adam Lowry said. “Benn’s kind of the prototypical power forward. He’s got speed, but he’s got skill and he plays a heavy game. Radulov, you see the hand skill, the body.”Ben Bishop finished with 32 saves for Dallas, 15 in the third period. Connor Hellebuyck had 30 for Winnipeg.“When we have our healthy (Bishop) back there, we’re a dangerous team Adidas Tage Thompson Jersey ,” Stars defenseman Marc Methot said.Radulov scored for the second time in the first two games on a wrist shot from a sharp angle below the right faceoff circle. The puck hit defenseman Tyler Myers’ left leg and went in off Hellebuyck’s right skate at 8:23. Seguin lifted a wrist shot from the right circle off Hellebuyck and into the net at 11:18.In the second period, the Jets’ Kyle Connor scored his second goal of the season and the first against Bishop after 82 minutes, 10 seconds.The first period ended with 14 minutes of penalties in the final second. At 19:59, the Methot went off for holding and Winnipeg’s Dustin Byfuglien retaliated with a cross checking penalty. On the ensuing faceoff, Brett Ritchie of Dallas and Lowry dropped their gloves and drew fighting majors at 20:00.NOTES: The Dallas record for power-play goals in a game is four, achieved 10 times. Defenseman Philippe Boucher in 2006 was the only Star with three power-play goals in a game. … Dallas was 3 for 5 on the power play, Winnipeg 0 for 3. … Hellebuyck’s personal regular-season winning streak ended at 10, including his last nine games last season. … Connor Carrick’s assist on Radulov’s goal was his third in the first two games. Carrick’s highest total in his four previous seasons was eight assists for Toronto in 2017-18. His had three assists in a three-game span as a rookie in February 2014.UP NEXTJets: Play their home opener against Los Angeles on Tuesday night.Stars: Continue a four-game opening homestand with the third game on Tuesday night vs. Toronto. Willie Desjardins will make his debut as head coach of the Los Angeles Kings when they host the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night at Staples Center.John Stevens was fired on Sunday after 18 months as head coach of Los Angeles.The Kings (4-8-1) got off to a 2-7-1 start after losing six straight games in regulation from Oct. 15-25. Los Angeles rebounded to win two of the next three, but the decision had already been made by general manager Rob Blake to fire Stevens, who was an assistant coach for the Kings when they won their only Stanley Cup titles in 2012 and 2014.Article continues below ...Desjardins Adidas Rasmus Andersson Jersey , 61, spent three seasons as head coach of the Vancouver Canucks from 2014-17, compiling a 109-110-27 record. He most recently coached Team Canada to a bronze medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics.“I want to see us play fast,” Desjardins told reporters after his first practice Monday. “I want to see us play with passion. I want us to be excited when we get to the rink. I want us to start each period quick. … We want to find ways to win.”The Ducks (6-6-3) have accomplished something the Kings haven’t this season and that’s win at least two games in a row, but they experienced an even longer winless streak when they went seven games without a victory from Oct. 20 to Nov. 1.They ended the drought with a 3-2 overtime win against the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets on Sunday, but not without more angst. The Blue Jackets tied the score with 32 seconds left in regulation when they pulled their goalie for an extra attacker, something the Kings did in their shootout loss to the visiting New York Rangers on Thursday.“We’ve played much better in the last three hockey games,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. “If we stick with it, we can see our team grow.”Anaheim received some good news when top-line center Ryan Getzlaf returned to practice Monday after missing Sunday’s win with an upper-body injury. Getzlaf has seven points (two goals, five assists) in a four-game point streak Adidas Dalton Prout Jersey , but the Ducks are just 2-5-2 with their captain in the lineup this season.Carlyle will likely have a difficult decision on who to start in goal against the Kings.John Gibson is the No. 1 goalie for Anaheim and he’s been as tough on the Kings as any team in the NHL, owning a 9-3-0 record, .935 save percentage and 1.79 goals-against average in 13 games.But the Ducks host the Calgary Flames on Wednesday, and the Flames will arrive on a four-game winning streak after scoring 11 goals in their past two games. Gibson has put up nearly identical numbers against the Flames as he has against the Kings, owning a 9-3 mark with a .934 save percentage and 1.73 GAA in 13 games.Anaheim backup goalie Ryan Miller has been solid in his three starts and one relief appearance this season, most recently stopping 33 of 36 shots in a 3-2 loss to the visiting Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday.
