The Dallas Stars snapped a four-game losing streak with a 4-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Friday, but the win came at a price.

Defenseman John Klingberg, 23, left the game after just two shifts in the first period with a lower-body injury and did not return.

In 66 games this season, Klingberg has scored 10 goals and 53 points, which puts him third among NHL defensemen in total points.

The win puts Dallas back into a tie with the Chicago Blackhawks for first in the Central Division with 85 points.

Devils goalie Cory Schneider also left the game in the third period with what looked to be a lower-body injury.
