Ducks blow 3-goal lead vs. Stars

DALLAS (AP) — Antoine Roussel looked out from under his Dallas Stars cowboy hat to talk about his game-winning goal.

Roussel, a native of France, scored with 1:28 to play, and Dallas rallied to beat the Anaheim Ducks 4-3 on Tuesday night.

His first goal of the season came on the rebound of Vernon Fiddler’s shot off Ducks goalie Frederik Andersen’s pads.

“A couple of times, (Fiddler) and I went on tight 2-on-1s tonight. It was good to finally get that goal, and obviously it was good to get the win. It’s fun to be rewarded.”

Roussel is better known as a penalty killer and agitator. Since 2013-14, he has the most penalty minutes (377) of any NHL player.

Stars coach Lindy Ruff said, “Those are great wins for a team, when a guy like that puts it in the back of the net.”

Patrick Sharp, Cody Eakin and John Klingberg scored in the second period to tie the score after falling behind 3-0. Antti Niemi had 17 saves to help Dallas improve to 7-2.
