Patrik Laine got his third hat trick of the season, including the go-ahead goal late in the third period, to lift the Winnipeg Jets over the Dallas Stars 5-2 on Tuesday night.

The Finnish rookie has 26 goals this season, including two in the third period while Winnipeg blew open a tight game.

Joel Armia and Blake Wheeler also scored to help the Jets snap a four-game skid.

Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin scored in the second period for Dallas to erase a two-goal deficit.

Connor Hellebuyck made 34 saves in his third straight start for the Jets since Ondrej Pavelec got a lower-body injury on Feb. 7.

Antti Niemi stopped 19 of the 22 shots for Dallas.
