Late surge carries Stars by Kings, 5-2

The Dallas Stars were hoping to get on the Los Angeles Kings early Thursday night at Staples Center, but they didn’t. Instead, they got on the Kings late, scoring four unanswered goals in the final 22 minutes of the game to rally for a 5-2 victory and snap Los Angeles’ home winning streak at six games.

“We bent a little bit in the second period and they took a little bit of momentum, but we stuck with it,” said Stars center Cody Eakin, who had a goal and an assist in the game. “We knew we could wear them down because they were three (games) in four nights.”

The Stars, who were coming off a three day break between games, ran their points streak on the road to four games (3-0-1) and improved to 6-1-1 in their last eight games away from home.

The Stars won the special teams battle, scoring twice on the power play and limiting the Kings to just one power play chance that they were able to kill off.

“The first 15 games we kind of stumbled on the power play, but lately we are doing a lot better job,” said Stars forward Jaromir Jagr, who scored two goals in the game. “It’s important in a short season, the games are so tight and the special teams are going to win the games for you.”
