SAN ANTONIO - Antoine Roussel scored two goals for the Dallas Stars on Friday night in a 4-1 NHL preseason win over Florida in an NHL preseason game played at the home of the Panthers' AHL affiliate.

It appeared that Roussel had completed a hat trick 2:37 into the third period during a power play, but his shot from the right circle was redirected into the net by Colton Sceviour.

Roussel, who netted seven goals last season as a rookie with the Stars, scored less than five minutes into the game when he deflected in Trevor Daley's shot.

In the second period, Roussel took a centring pass after Chris Mueller's rush and quickly bounced the puck under goalie Michael Houser. Mueller also scored with less than six minutes to go.

Dan Ellis, subbing for Stars starter Kari Lehtonen, lost his shutout bid when Tom Gilbert scored a power-play goal midway through the third period.
