OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) - Jamie Benn scored two goals, and the Stars beat the Senators 6-3 on Thursday night in Jason Spezza's first game in Ottawa since he was traded to Dallas in the offseason.

John Klingberg, Colton Sceviour, Ales Hemsky and Trevor Daley also scored for Dallas, and Kari Lehtonen made 25 saves.

Mika Zibanejad, Bobby Ryan and Alex Chiasson scored for Ottawa. Robin Lehner, making his first start since January 13th, stopped 33 shots.

Spezza made his NHL debut with Ottawa in 2002 and had spent his entire career with the Senators before the trade. The former Senators captain got a standing ovation from the crowd of 18,752 following a video tribute early in the first period.
