Cole scores 2 leads Stars to 3 2 win over Kings
DALLAS (AP) -- Erik Cole scored twice and Tyler Seguin netted his 20th goal of the season as the Dallas Stars edged the struggling Los Angeles Kings 3-2 on Tuesday night.
Jeff Carter and Anze Kopitar scored for Los Angeles, which has lost four straight. The Kings, beaten at Chicago on Monday, will end a four-game trip on Thursday at St. Louis.
The Stars have earned five points during the first three games of a five-game homestand. Kari Lehtonen (16-8-7) stopped 23 shots for Dallas.
Cole notched his second two-goal game of the season, and both have come within Dallas' past three games. Seguin reached 20 goals for the second time in his four-year NHL career. He had 29 goals in 2011-12 with Boston.
Carter and Kopitar tied Justin Williams for the team lead with 13 goals.
