DALLAS (AP) — Tyler Seguin had three goals and two assists to lead the Dallas Stars to a 6-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night.

Jamie Benn, Alex Goligoski and Ryan Garbutt also scored for Dallas, which built a 5-0 lead. Kari Lehtonen made 31 saves, and Benn and Rich Peverley each had two assists.

Seguin scored twice in the first period, and completed his hat trick at 12:53 of the third. His third three-goal game this season tied Bill Guerin and Mike Modano for the Stars record.

Vancouver’s Zac Dalpe scored at 18:15 of the second period.

Dallas solidified its hold on the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference, improving to 9-3-2 in their last 14 goals.

The fading Canucks, 11th in the West, dropped to 1-10-1 in their last 12 and fell four points behind Dallas.
