Recap: Dallas vs. Boston
Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Dougie Hamilton tallied a goal and an assist as the Boston Bruins scored three unanswered goals in their 3-1 win over the Dallas Stars on Tuesday.
Loui Eriksson scored against his former team and Gregory Campbell also lit the lamp for the Bruins, who have won six of their last seven games. Tuukka Rask stopped 36 shots in the win.
Vernon Fiddler supplied the Stars' lone offense in his 700th career game and Kari Lehtonen allowed all three goals on 27 shots.
"I just played it as another game, but 700 games for a guy that's like me, it is a pretty big accomplishment," said Fiddler. "I've had great coaches and great teammates."
After a scoreless first, Fiddler skated into the zone and beat Rask with a backhander from the right circle 6:46 into the second.
Carl Soderberg raced up the left side, took a cross-ice pass from Chris Kelly and made a slick backhanded dish to Eriksson, who tied the game on a wrister with 5:43 left in the second.
Campbell gave the Bruins the lead after his wrister went under the stick of a sliding Lehtonen with 1:33 left in the middle stanza.
After Jason Demers went off for elbowing, Dallas took advantage on the power play as Hamilton's rising wrister from the right circle gave the Bruins a 3-1 advantage with 7:41 elapsed in the third.
"We play our best when the effort is there, and it was there tonight," said Hamilton.
Colton Sceviour rang a shot off the post with 6:25 remaining and the Stars were unable to score on a late power play as the Bruins held on for the win.Game Notes
