The Los Angeles Kings rolled over the Dallas Stars at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. The Stars came out flat after the Olympic break and were never in the game. Los Angeles was led by Alexander Frolov, who had a goal and 2 assists, and goalie Jonathon Quick, who finished with 31 saves. Mike Ribeiro scored the only goal for Dallas, his 14th of the season.
Stars goalie Marty Turco started his 500th game, making him one of only 5 goaltenders in NHL history who have done so with only one team.
