MONTREAL – NHL video officials may soon start giving gray hair to interim Canadian coach Martin St. Louis.
John Kleinberg scored his second goal in overtime The Dallas Stars beat Montreal 4-3 Thursday night at the Bell Center.

No hiccups, Klingberg decides in controversy
St-Louis had already taken charge of the locker room when it was reported that the central NHL had decided to review the sequence. Officials concluded that Seguin attempted to play a disc in the goal area and confirmed that the goal was fine.
“From my perspective, when I watch the play, I see that the player is in the goalkeeper’s area and touches Jake’s shield, as St. Louis pointed out. It’s not a decision I like, but I’m still a young man in my coaching career and I have to respect it.”
St. Louis lost their first goalie challenge on March 5, against the Edmonton Oilers.
As for the rest of the match, the Canadian fought well, but suffered a fourth loss in his last five matches.
“It was an exciting match, I’m sure for the fans, and for me as a coach. It’s a pity not to win, but I’m happy with the way the players played,” St. Louis insisted.
Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield each had a goal and assist, while Corey Scheuenemann scored his first goal in the National Hockey League for Al-Kindi (16-36-9). On his first start since Jan. 12, when he sustained a lower-body injury, Allen held 31 shots.
At the all-star level (33-23-3), Jimmy Benn scored a goal and a assist, while Radek Faxa shook the ropes. Jake Oettinger saved 28 balls.
In addition to Allen, Christian Dvorak has also returned to the Canadians team. The American Center had missed the last 19 housing complexes with a neck injury.
