Stars Rout Capitals 5-0 to Maintain Playoff Push

WASHINGTON (AP) _ Tyler Seguin scored his 33rd goal, Dustin Jeffrey got his
first two of the season, and the Dallas Stars routed the Washington Capitals 5-0
Tuesday night in a game between a pair of ninth-place teams trying to leapfrog
into a playoff spot.

Ray Whitney and Ryan Garbutt also scored, Alex Chiasson had three assists, and
Kari Lehtonen made 35 saves for his fourth shutout of the season for the Stars.

Dallas began the day one point behind the Phoenix Coyotes for the final
postseason berth in the Western Conference. The Coyotes hosted Winnipeg later
Tuesday.

The Stars have won five of six in their push to make the playoffs for first
time since 2008 _ the same year the Capitals began streak of postseason
appearances that is in danger of coming to an end.
