ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Saku Koivu scored two of his three goals on slick setups by Teemu Selanne in the third period, and the Anaheim Ducks beat the Dallas Stars 5-2 Tuesday night for their first three-game winning streak in nearly three months. Koivu scored the tiebreaking goal with 10:28 to play and added an empty-net goal with 53.7 seconds left for the longtime Montreal captain's second career hat trick. Jeff Deslauriers made 26 saves in his first NHL appearance in nearly two years for Anaheim, which hadn't won three straight since starting the season 4-1. Luca Sbisa also scored, and Matt Beleskey added his first goal of the season with 5:20 to play.
