Surrey native Brenden Dillon played the role of spoiler scoring the game-winner late in the third period to give the Stars a 4-3 win over the Canucks on the night Henrik Sedin broke Markus Naslund's record for career points.
Dallas opened the scoring in the first period with a marker from Reilly Smith moments after a questionable call took away a Mason Raymond tally – disallowed due to goaltender interference.
Vancouver came out flying in the second period scoring three straight in the first ten minutes. Daniel Sedin tied it up on a feed from his brother which tied Naslund's point record, followed by goals from Chris Higgins and Alex Burrows to give the Canucks a 3-1 lead. Henrik assisted on the Burrows marker, giving him 757 points as a Canuck surpassing the record of former Captain Markus Naslund. Sedin received a well deserved three minute standing ovation as play continued from the appreciative crowd.
Shortly after however the Canucks engaged in three fights two of which were won by the Stars giving the visitors momentum to score three straight goals. Cody Eaken responded with one late in the second period while Antoine Rousell tied midway thru the third. Local boy Brenden Dillon would score the game winner with just over two minutes to play snapping the Canucks 6 game winning streak and spoiling a milestone night for Henrik Sedin.
Canucks Goaltender Cory Schneider struggled on the night stopping 25 of 29 Stars shots and admitted post game that he allowed two soft goals. The Canucks conclude their four game home stand on Sunday night when they host the St. Louis Blues, puck drop just after 6 o’clock
