Leafs finally win at home

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.

Around the league: The Blackhawks sent slumping forward Bryan Bickell to Rockford of the AHL and recalled prospect Marko Dano. … Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko will be back in the lineup tonight at home against the Kings, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Tarasenko missed Saturday's 3-2 win over Minnesota with a leg injury. … The league suspended Ottawa's leading scorer, Mark Stone, for two games for a hit to the head of Detroit's Landon Ferraro on Saturday. Stone loses $37,634.40 in salary and will miss games tonight against Montreal and Thursday against Winnipeg. … Islanders star John Tavares, who fell ill Saturday, likely will miss a third game tonight against the Devils, Newsday reported.
