Jiri Hudler scored his first goal of the season at the 7:44 mark of the third period to give Dallas a 6-4 win over Los Angeles on Monday night.

After a relatively calm first and second period, the third exploded with six goals scored. Dallas entered that period with a 3-1 lead, but the Kings scored three times in the first five and half minutes with one answer from the Stars. A little more than two minutes after Drew Doughty tied the game, Hudler reestablished the Stars lead. Hudler’s first goal in 16 games this season was not the only drought-killer for the Stars. Brett Ritchie kicked off the scoring for the team late in the first to snap a 12-game goalless streak. Hudler also had an assist on Tyler Seguin's second period goal

Jiri Hudler will skate on the Stars' third line in his return to the lineup on Sunday against the Blackhawks.

He'll skate to the left Cody Eakin and Patrick Eaves. Hudler is pointless through four games so far. He has four straight seasons of at least 40 points, so we'd expect it to turn around.

Jiri Hudler could play Sunday evening against Chicago.

He has missed all but four games this season due to a serious illness but seems on the cusp of a return to action. If he does dress Sunday, Cody Eakin may be a healthy scratch.

Jiri Hudler (illness) skated Monday and could be back in the lineup soon.

I don't know where he'll be by the end of the week, but I think we can get him five real good days and we'll see by the weekend where he's at." Hudler has appeared in just four games this season because of an illness and he hasn't played since Nov. 1.
