Video: Seguin scores four, Benn’s six-point night helps Stars rout Flames 7-3

Nov 15, 2013, 12:42 AM EDT

The Tyler Seguin deal is working out pretty well so far for the Dallas Stars.

The young star forward had four goals and captain Jamie Benn had six points to help the Stars cruise to a 7-3 win on the road against the Calgary Flames. Both players’ big night launched them up the NHL points leaderboard.

Seguin added an assist with his four goals while Benn’s big night saw him score once and set up five others. Both players now have 22 points on the season tying them with Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf for fifth in the league.

As for Seguin’s big night, here’s all four of his goals including one on the power play to wrap it up.

    The Flames didn’t play with any intensity tonight. I know we are at the start of a rebuild, but there’s no excuse for playing without any heart like we did. I hope they can bring back the fire they had at the start of the year.

    Your team had a good night when you score 4 goals and are 2nd star!

    Wow that’s nuts. That lines lookin great together. Those two just feed off each other’s skills. Seguins really workin out good in Dallas. I would of never thought those two would be 5th in the league with 22 points right now.

    ……aaaannnddd they’re in tenth place in the conference. And BTW, the only thing this shows is how bad the Calgary Flames are. That was a disgrace.

    Best line in hockey right now: Benn-Seguin-Nichushkin or Lucic-Krejci-Iginla? Who ya got?

    • thethorntonstrokes - Nov 15, 2013 at 8:21 AM

      Lucic-Krejci-Iginla isn’t CLOSE to being the best line in hockey.

      • matt14gg - Nov 15, 2013 at 8:46 AM

        Then you haven’t been watching the Lucic-Krejci-Iginla line.

    • darksidecowboy - Nov 15, 2013 at 11:40 AM

      The best part of the Dallas line is that they could dominate for a decade. Benn is 24, Seguin 21, and Nichushkin 18 = Dang

  6. balewsquare - Nov 15, 2013 at 7:44 AM

    The Sharp-Toews-Hossa line has been dominant lately.

  7. dropthepuckeh - Nov 15, 2013 at 8:42 AM

    I couldn’t watch the video but read the headline Seguin scores four. Blondes or brunettes?

    • withseidelinn - Nov 15, 2013 at 9:34 AM

      Both. haha

  8. broadstreetsbaddest88 - Nov 15, 2013 at 9:00 AM

    I’d have to say Penner Getzlaf Perry line has been the best if not top 3 lines in the league

  9. amityvillefun - Nov 15, 2013 at 9:05 AM

    Looks like Seguin is going to get the last laugh on Boston. What a great night for him.

    Every game he puts up points like that the Bruins are going to wonder, “Did Chiarelli give up too early on him?”

    • dropthepuckeh - Nov 15, 2013 at 9:15 AM

      Not sure you can evaluate the trade 20 games into the season. Seguin is a great talent no doubt but scoring four goals against Calgary in November while not being required play any defense isn’t exactly getting the last laugh. Let’s revisit in May/ June and see who is still playing hockey.

      • harrbenj - Nov 15, 2013 at 9:33 AM

        He actually has done pretty well defensively. No one will mistake him for Bergeron but he’s played pretty well in the defensive zone. Ruff had him on the ice in the last minute vs Edmonton the night before to defend the lead and he stole the puck from Hall before putting it in the empty net. His defense is a work in progress but he’s made improvements

      • withseidelinn - Nov 15, 2013 at 9:35 AM

        20 games is a pretty good first point for evaluation. Up until now Seguin has completely outplayed Eriksson.

      • jcmeyer10 - Nov 15, 2013 at 9:45 AM

        withseidelinn: you can’t forgot about Reilly Smith, and Joe Morrow, and Matt Fraser (who aren’t with the big club). The trade was more than just Eriksson, and thus should be judged in it’s totality.

      • dropthepuckeh - Nov 15, 2013 at 9:49 AM

        Outscored him obviously but hard to evaluate how he has outplayed him. Eriksson missed a bunch of games with a concussion but seems to be fitting in nicely with Bergeron and Marchand. Don’t forget Reilly Smith was also in this deal and he is also contributing. The two of them combined for 18 points to Seguin’s 22. I think maybe both teams are happy with the deal.

    • darksidecowboy - Nov 15, 2013 at 11:42 AM

      Well getting Seguin elimates the keen sting from the James Neal trade, thank you Chiarelli for this 21 year old phenom

  10. LampyB - Nov 15, 2013 at 9:29 AM

    The trade was great for Boston. Doesnt matter is seguin is awesome he want fitting into the system and this would do better elsewhere. Its like a high talent employee working a job he hates. Both company and employee will be better off without him.

    • jcmeyer10 - Nov 15, 2013 at 9:49 AM

      And he was getting paidddddd, which I think ultimately made the trade happen. 6 million dollars is a lot in a sport with a low cap. Bruins would rather give that money to Bergeron, and who could blame him.

      Seguin could/is a 6 million dollar man, but what makes salary caps sports interesting is you can’t hoard talent and you have to be careful how much you sign a guy for.

    • darksidecowboy - Nov 15, 2013 at 11:43 AM

      Well …lucky us in Dallas, thanks again Boston

  11. stonebullet - Nov 15, 2013 at 10:05 AM

    Seguin has put up some nice points and I think he’ll get better in that wide-open system. Where I’ll knock him is he’s played 19 games and half (6) of his 12 goals came in only 2 games against 2 horrible teams. Against Boston, Montreal, Detriot, Chicago, Anaheim, and San Jose he only has 2 points total in those 6 games.

    He’s super talented, I’m just not convinced he’d be doing any better here. I do know one thing as a Bruins fan, when Loui won the puck battle against Phaneuf last weekend to get Bergy that empty-netter, Seguin would not have won that.

    • cambee99 - Nov 15, 2013 at 1:44 PM

      Don’t know about the Phanfuf fight. What I do know is Seguin won the puck battle for Bergy to win game 7 against the Leafs.

      Damn Bandwagon fans

  12. harrbenj - Nov 15, 2013 at 10:10 AM

    “Boston won!”
    “No Dallas won!”
    lol seriously, can’t it just be a good deal for both teams? Because it probably is. Both teams got what they wanted.

    • darksidecowboy - Nov 15, 2013 at 11:50 AM

      Ok fine, but that’s what fans do after deals like this. Still do you fans in Boston really believe that Loui is good enough for a 2nd overall pick that’s only 21 who has his Seguin’s skills? seriously? even after a few drinks? Trust me, fans in Dallas are still pissed about the Neal/Golioski trade.

  13. bruinsfan55 - Nov 15, 2013 at 10:25 AM

    Good for Seguin. We all knew he would be better in Dallas not having to play much defense. Loui has worked out pretty well for us along with Reilly Smith. Nice job Segs

    • darksidecowboy - Nov 15, 2013 at 12:47 PM

      Dallas also got Peverly who’s doing pretty good for Dallas, cough cough shootout goal cough cough wins game

  14. dewzer - Nov 15, 2013 at 11:33 AM

    I agree with the comments that it’s still way to early to assess. Seems to working out well for both parties so far. I will say that Jamie Benn is the straw stirring that drink though. He was everywhere in the game against Boston. Can’t view the video for some reason but I heard audio on T&R this a.m. I recall a significant amount of “pass from Benn, Seguin scores.”

    • darksidecowboy - Nov 15, 2013 at 11:52 AM

      Now people will talk about Benn(Suchi perhaps), he’s been stirring the Stars drinks since his rookie season. When he’s allowed to play wing with a talent like Seguin he can do what he does best. It’s the one-two punch this team has needed for years, and hopefully for years to come.
