DALLAS (AP) - Alex Chiasson scored the tiebreaking goal at 12:07 of the second period and the Dallas Stars defeated the Washington Capitals 2-1 on Saturday night.

Dallas stopped a Capitals flurry on a power play as the game ended.

Alex Ovechkin scored in the first period for Washington. Erik Cole tied it at 8:01 of the first.

Midway through the second, the Stars skated in 3-on-2 against goalie Braden Holtby. Cody Eakin took a shot, and the rebound went out to Chiasson as he skated down the slot. His shot beat Holtby for his second goal in two games this season.

The 23-year-old Chiasson has eight goals in his nine-game NHL career.

Ovechkin's fourth goal of the season came on a power play 4:26 into the game.
