STARS 3, SHARKS 1
DALLAS — Jamie Benn scored a goal and added an assist, and Dallas’ struggling power play connected twice in a victory over San Jose.
Jaromir Jagr and Michael Ryder also scored for Dallas, and Cristopher Nilstorp was outstanding in making 31 saves for his first NHL win. 
The Stars, 1-3 in their previous four games, snapped an 0-for-16, power-play skid and scored on consecutive opportunities to take a 2-0 lead early in the third period.
Patrick Marleau notched the only goal for San Jose, his 12th of the season, but the Sharks fell to 1-6-2 in their last nine. Antti Niemi made 25 saves.
With Kari Lehtonen missing his third straight game because of a groin injury, Nilstorp stepped up to earn the victory.
BLUES 2, BLUE JACKETS 1
ST. LOUIS — David Perron scored the go-ahead goal midway through the third period and St. Louis ended a five-game home losing streak with a victory over Columbus.
Chris Stewart had a first-period goal for the Blues, outscored 23-9 during an 0-4-1 slump. Perron beat Sergei Bobrovsky from the slot for his sixth goal at 9:51, also the Blues’ first shot of the period. 
Jaroslav Halak made 18 saves, giving up his first goal at home in 168 minutes, 32 seconds on Matt Calvert’s short-handed tally late in the second, a streak that dated to March 31, 2012.
Bobrovsky made 21 saves for Columbus, last in the NHL with 12 points. The Blue Jackets are 1-4 on a six-game road trip that ends Sunday in Chicago.
SENATORS 3, MAPLE LEAFS 2
OTTAWA — Colin Greening batted a puck out of midair for a goal with 24 seconds remaining to give Ottawa a win over Toronto.
Mika Zibanejad and Erik Condra also scored for the Senators, who got 26 saves from Ben Bishop. Ottawa extended its winning streak to four games.
Mikhail Grabovski and Clarke MacArthur scored for Toronto. Ben Scrivens, who made his seventh straight start, stopped 32 shots.
