Jamie Benn and Colton Sceviour scored goals 15 seconds apart in the first period Thursday night, leading the Dallas Stars to a 4-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks.

Erik Cole had a goal and two assists, and Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley added two assists apiece for the Stars.

Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen made 26 saves and allowed only one goal for his 100th win with the Stars. He had allowed 10 goals during his previous two starts.

The Canucks (20-11-6) lost on the road for the second time in three nights following a seven-game winning streak. They had earned at least a point in eight consecutive games.

Dallas (17-12-5) started fast, taking six of the first seven shots on goal.

At 4:34 of the first period, Benn lifted a shot over Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo on assists from Seguin and Cole.

The Stars came right back at Luongo after the faceoff.

Peverley sent a pass across the goal mouth to Sceviour, who scored at 4:49 for his third goal in four games this season.

Vancouver’s second shot of the game went into the upper-right corner of the net. Chris Higgins fired from the right faceoff circle over Lehtonen to cut the deficit to 2-1.

Dallas led 2-1 after one period, with a 13-7 advantage in shots.

Dallas broke through again for a 3-1 lead at 16:56 of the second period when Cole’s shot trickled past Luongo’s right side and across the goal line. Peverley received his second assist of the night.

Cody Eakin beat Luongo with a shot 22 seconds before the period ended, but the goal was waved off because of an interference penalty.

In the third period, Cole’s backhand pass set up Valeri Nichushkin in the right circle, and his shot beat Luongo.
