DALLAS (AP) – Mikael Samuelsson and Christian Ehrhoff scored power-play goals to lead the Vancouver Canucks over the Dallas Stars 4-1 Tuesday night.

Vancouver also got a short-handed goal from Ryan Kesler and Alex Burrows also found the back of the net. Daniel Sedin added two assists.

In the first game back from the All-Star break for both clubs, the Canucks recorded their third straight victory and moved into sole possession of first place overall in the NHL.

It was the third time in the last 33 days that the Canucks dominated the Stars, winning all three games by a combined score of 15-3. During those three, the Vancouver power play has done most of the damage, converting 8 of 15 attempts.
