DALLAS (AP) — Derek Roy had a goal and two assists and Kari Lehtonen made 25 saves to help lead the Dallas Stars to a 4-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Sunday.

Loui ErikssonJaromir Jagr and Erik Cole also scored for Dallas.

For Cole, it was his first goal with Dallas in his second game with the team since he was acquired in a trade with Montreal last week.

The Stars also played impressive team defense, giving up just one goal after a deflating 5-1 loss at home against Edmonton on Thursday.

Lehtonen was strong after the Edmonton loss, which was his first game back after missing five because of a groin strain.

David Perron scored for St. Louis and Brian Elliott made 23 saves for the Blues.

The Blues lost for the first time in regulation in their past five road games (3-1-1) and are still 6-3-1 away from home.
