Lowry scores 2 in 2nd period, Jets beat Stars 5-2

Winnipeg rookie Adam Lowry scored twice in the second period to lead the Jets to a 5-2 victory over the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night.

Mathieu Perreault, Blake Wheeler and Michael Frolik also scored for Winnipeg, and Michael Hutchinson stopped 26 shots.

Tyler Seguin had his NHL-leading 22nd goal and Antoine Roussel also scored for Dallas.

Lowry's first goal broke a 2-all tie as his low shot got past Trevor Daley's sliding block attempt and between Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen's legs at 7:22 of the second.

The Stars then pulled Lehtonen, and Lowry scored on a rebound against backup Jussi Rynnas at 9:41.

Frolik's short-handed goal with 40 seconds remaining in the period capped the scoring.

Lehtonen stopped 14 of the 17 shots he faced, and Rynnas finished with 13 saves on 15 shots as the Stars dropped to 0-7-3 against Central Division opponents.
