Stars end losing streak in typically sloppy fashion; Kopitar breaks a record

Win or lose, it’s rarely been easy for the Dallas Stars this season. It’s only fitting that they¬†stumbled quite a bit before ending their latest losing streak.

The Stars carried a 3-1 lead into the third period, and it didn’t take long for things to get rocky in the final frame.

Dustin Brown made it 3-2 a little more than two minutes into the third period, sparking a 3-1 run by the Kings through about three minutes of action. Just like that, it was 4-4.

Jiri Hudler then chose a great time to score his first goal with the Stars, as it was the eventual game-winner for the Stars. Patrick Sharp ultimately added one more goal to lock up a 6-4 win for the Stars.

Again, it wasn’t pretty. You know it’s a flawed win – and a zany game – when both goalies make an appearance (and injuries weren’t involved).

And the Stars certainly have some work to do.

Kopitar continues night of milestones
