LOS ANGELES (AP) — Richard Bachman made 26 saves in his first NHL start, defenseman Trevor Daley scored the go-ahead goal and Jamie Benn connected on a power play, leading the Dallas Stars to a 2-1 victory over Los Angeles on Saturday night and sending the low-scoring Kings their fourth straight loss.

It was the second game in a row that Los Angeles has lost at home to a goalie making his first NHL start. On Thursday night, Minnesota’s Matt Hackett stopped 42 shots in a 4-2 victory.

The Kings are averaging a league-worst 2.2 goals and have scored no more than two in any of their last eight games, their longest such streak since a nine-game stretch late in the 2005-06 season.
