Tyler Seguin snuck the puck past Flames goalie Reto Berra during Thursday’s game in Calgary.

Tyler Seguin scored four goals and Jamie Benn had a career-high 6 points to lead the Dallas Stars over the slumping Flames, 7-3, on Thursday in Calgary, Alberta.

Benn had a goal and five assists. Stephane Robidas and Ryan Garbutt also scored for the Stars, who have won five of six and reeled off five straight road victories. Alex Goligoski had three assists.

Dallas scored four consecutive goals in the second period to hand the Flames their fifth loss in a row.


The top Stars line of Seguin, Benn, and rookie Valeri Nichushkin was too quick, too skilled, and too elusive for the Flames, who were a step behind all night and could not contain them.
