TORONTO — Joffrey Lupul had two goals and an assist, James Reimer stopped 43 shots, and the Maple Leafs beat the Stars 4-1 on Monday for their first home win of the season.
Brad Boyes and Morgan Rielly also scored for Toronto, which had lost its first four at home (0-3-1).
Jamie Benn got his league-leading 10th goal and Antti Niemi had 22 saves for Dallas, which had its three-game winning streak snapped.
Boyes thought he had his second of the night late in the first period, but it was overturned when Dallas challenged that the Maple Leafs were offside.
Lupul got the tiebreaking goal 21 seconds into the second, then made it 3-1 with a power-play goal with 7:15 left in the period. He has five goals on the season and 199 for his career.
