Trevor Daley and Jamie Benn scored power-play goals, Loui Eriksson added a third-period score and the Dallas Stars beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-1 on Friday night.

Eriksson gave the Stars some breathing room when he corralled Alex Goligoski's cross-ice pass and fired a wrist shot past Anaheim goaltender Viktor Fasth with 7:14 remaining.

Goligoski, who was a healthy scratch Wednesday in Edmonton, added two assists for Dallas (6-5-1), which earned its third consecutive win.

Nick Bonino scored for the Ducks (7-2-1), who had won four in a row. It was the first regulation road loss this season for Anaheim.
