DALLAS (AP) -- Trevor Daley and Jamie Benn scored power-play goals, Loui Eriksson added a third-period score and the Dallas Stars beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-1 on Friday night. Eriksson gave the Stars some breathing room when he corralled Alex Goligoski's cross-ice pass and fired a wrist shot past Anaheim goaltender Viktor Fasth with 7:14 remaining. Goligoski, who was a healthy scratch Wednesday in Edmonton, added two assists for Dallas (6-5-1), which earned its third consecutive win. Nick Bonino scored for the Ducks (7-2-1), who had won four in a row. It was the first regulation road loss this season for Anaheim. Ducks goaltender Jonas Hiller left after the first period with a lower body injury. He made 14 saves, and Fasth finished with 11 stops. The Stars' power-play unit struck twice in the first period. It went 2 for 5 overall after managing just one goal on 16 opportunities over the previous five games. Dallas also outshot Anaheim 28-21, marking the first time this season that it had outshot an opponent. Daley was strong at the other end as well, disrupting two different breakaways. He helped stop Corey Perry in the first period, resulting in an easy save for Kari Lehtonen, and Kyle Palmieri didn't even get a shot off on his opportunity in the second. Lehtonen was excellent in goal, making 20 saves. The Ducks cut the Stars' lead to 2-1 with 4:37 remaining in the second period when Bonino scored for the fourth time this season, re-directing Luca Sbisa's booming slap shot over Lehtonen's shoulder. Anaheim nearly tied it just over a minute later, but Lehtonen gloved Daniel Winnik's backhander on a 3-on-1 rush. Dallas got off to a fast start, outshooting the Ducks 8-1 through the first seven minutes, and drawing the first power play when Brad Staubitz was sent off for roughing. Daley capitalized at 8:48 when his slap shot from the point found its way through a screen and squeezed under Hiller's arm. Shortly afterward, frustrations bubbled over after a Stephane Robidas slash on Perry went undetected by the officials, incensing Perry and resulting in a fight between the two at 11:02. Staubitz then speared Dallas rookie Brenden Dillon in the groin at 12:34, earning himself a five-minute major and a game misconduct. It took the Stars just 25 seconds to cash in on the extra-man opportunity, with Benn collecting his fourth goal in the last three games. He retrieved the puck off the end boards just above the goal line on the left side and fired it from a sharp angle past the scrambling Hiller. NOTES: D Ben Lovejoy, acquired Wednesday in a trade with Pittsburgh for a fifth-round draft choice in 2014, made his Ducks debut. In 16:20 of ice time, he registered a team-high four shots on goal. . After tallying the only goal in the second period, Anaheim has outscored opponents 12-4 in middle periods this season, while Dallas has been outscored 15-8. . The Ducks have outscored opponents 23-13 during 5-on-5 play this season, the best differential in the NHL. . Dallas has now won seven of the last eight meetings between the Pacific Division rivals.
