Kyle Connor had a goal and an assist and Patrik Laine ended a 12-game scoring drought with his 30th goal of the season.

The Stars got their first power play of the game early in the second, but couldn't capitalize on five shots. However, a minute after the power play ended, Dallas hit its stride.

Lindell's shot from the top of the circle went by Hellebuyck's blocker at 10:27.

Faska then went in alone and beat Hellebuyck high on the glove side at 12:23.

The Stars then had a two-man advantage and Seguin notched his 30th goal of the season with a shot on the blocker side at 15:16.

Seguin scored his second goal on the power play at 10:34, adding to a four-game point streak that includes four goals and four assists.

Winnipeg responded with a burst 29 seconds later as Connor notched his 33rd goal of the season.

Laine blasted a one-timer past Bishop at 15:10 that closed the gap to 4-2, but Faska put the puck into an empty net with 40 seconds remaining for the final margin.

NOTES: Seguin has scored 30 or more goals in five of his last six seasons. ... Bishop earned the 200th win of his career.
