DALLAS (AP) — Limited to 11 forwards because of injuries Aleksander Barkov Jersey , the Dallas Stars got the game they needed from top scorers Jason Spezza and John Klingberg.Spezza and Klingberg each had a goal and an assist and the Stars snapped a three-game losing streak with a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night.Blake Comeau and Tyler Pitlick each scored their first goal of the season, and seven of the 11 forwards had at least one point.“I enjoyed the 11 forwards tonight,” Stars coach Jim Montgomery said. “Everybody was into the game.”Pitlick skated with Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn on the top line because Alexander Radulov was still out with a lower-body injury. Pitlick’s goal was his first point this season and the first power-play goal in his 146-game career.“We had a couple guys that got them and got the monkey off their back,” Pitlick said.Montgomery wasn’t committing to keeping Pitlick on the first line.“He did OK,” Montgomery said, “but I want (Radulov) back.”Despite missing the last three games, Radulov has 10 points in six games, trailing only Seguin’s 11 points.Defenseman Klingberg leads the Stars with five goals. He has eight points, and Spezza seven.Ben Bishop made 31 saves for Dallas, which never trailed.“Besides breakaways Evgenii Dadonov Jersey Kids , it didn’t look like anything would get by (Bishop), who was by far our best player tonight.” Montgomery said. “The shots were perfect shots or perfect moves that had to get pucks by him.”Anze Kopitar and Tyler Toffoli scored second-period goals for the Kings, who lost their fifth straight. Jonathan Quick stopped 19 shots for Los Angeles.“I thought this was a step in the right direction,” Kopitar said, “but we can’t just get satisfied with getting close. I thought we moved the puck better, but there are still breakdowns that happened, and we have to correct them.”Defensive breakdowns, especially in front of Quick, resulted in a fifth straight game allowing four or more goals.Comeau started the scoring at 5:14 of the first period on assists from Jason Dickinson and Spezza.“I’m thinking wraparound first,” Dickinson said. “I’m thinking Quick has me beat to the short side , so I wanted to draw it back side, thinking (Spezza) would be going back door. I got lucky that it rolled off my stick.”There was Comeau in front.“It was a great play by Jason. He got the puck, carried it all the way around the net. I just tried to find a little hole in front of the net. I didn’t do much on that play,” he said.Pitlick scored on a Stars power play at 4:23 of the third period, with assists going to Seguin and Klingberg.“They have a great power play over there – best in the league,” Kings coach John Stevens said. “You don’t want to give them opportunities to get on the power play. A lot of detail that comes back to bite you.”With an extra skater, Los Angeles put the puck in the net with 30 seconds to play, but the goal was disallowed because of goaltender interference.NOTES: Dallas RW Valeri Nichushkin (lower-body injury) also missed his third straight game. … The Stars played with seven defensemen and just 11 forwards. The Kings have been outscored 25-7 in their five straight losses. Dallas opponents had a 10-2 advantage during the Stars’ losing streak. … Dowling was playing his first NHL game since 2016-17. He was recalled from Texas of the AHL on Monday. … Kings D Sean Walker assisted on Toffoli’s goal in his NHL debut after being recalled from Ontario of the AHL. … Kopitar has 16 career goals in 59 games against the Stars.UP NEXTKings: At Minnesota on Thursday to finish a two-game trip.Stars: Complete a three-game homestand on Thursday against Anaheim. TORONTO (AP) — Matt Murray and the Pittsburgh Penguins slowed down Auston Matthews and the Toronto Maple Leafs.Murray made 38 saves for his first shutout of the season and Pittsburgh snapped Toronto’s winning streak at five games with a stifling 3-0 victory Thursday night.Evgeni Malkin had two goals and an assist, scoring early and adding an empty-net goal. Kris Letang also had an empty-netter, and Sidney Crosby picked up an assist to tie Darryl Sittler for 60th on the NHL’s career points list with 1 Youth Jamie McGinn Jersey ,221.“It’s the best game this season so far for us,” Malkin said. “We played three periods against Matthews, (John) Tavares. We did a great job.”Matthews, the NHL in scoring with 16 points on 10 goals and six assists, was looking to become the third player in NHL to start a season with eight consecutive multi-point games.“We had a hard time getting on the inside,” Matthews said. “There are a lot of things that we can improve on. It seems like they were just calm, cool, collected. They didn’t run around, they just played smart and didn’t force anything.”The Maple Leafs came in averaging an NHL-high 4.71 goals.“They have a lot of offensive weapons,” Crosby said. “We did a great job of limiting their chances. They’re going to get them Womens Jared McCann Jersey , they’re a pretty highly-skilled group, but we didn’t give them any freebies.”Murray returned from a concussion that sidelined him for three games. He has seven career shutouts.“We played really solid all the way through and battled hard,” Murray said. “That’s a crazy, dynamic team over there and we were able to hold them off pretty well.”Frederik Andersen stopped 36 shots for Toronto. He was back in goal after sitting out a victory over Los Angeles on Monday night because of a minor knee injury.“All victories, you’ve got to earn,” Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said. “It was right there for us to find another step and get better and find a way to get on the inside a little more, and they did a good job and kept us from doing that. There’s a lesson learned in that. “They’re a more veteran, polished playoff team than we are and it showed.”Malkin opened the scoring midway through the first period, six seconds after the Maple Leafs were penalized for too many men on the ice. Crosby won the draw and the puck found its way down low to Malkin, who fired a low shot that beat Andersen through the pads.Notes: Mario Lemieux (1992-93) holds the NHL record for consecutive multi-point games to start a season with 12 Jonathan Huberdeau Jersey , while Kevin Stevens, his linemate that season, did it eight times. … Pittsburgh improved to 3-1-2, and Toronto dropped to 6-2-0.UP NEXTPenguins: At Edmonton on Tuesday night.Maple Leafs: Host St. Louis on Saturday night.
