EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Paul Stastny scored to end a lengthy goal drought by Vegas forwards, Robin Lehner stopped all 24 shots he faced for his fourth shutout of the playoffs and the Golden Knights rediscovered their winning ways and beat the Dallas Stars 3-0 in Game 2 of the Western Conference final, evening the series.

Stastny’s second-period goal was the first by a Vegas forward with an opposing goalie in net in 276:24, dating to Game 4 against Vancouver last round.

William Karlsson and Tomas Nosek made it three in less 10 minutes against Anton Khudobin, who was pulled at the second intermission with Vegas dominating.
