WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) Patrik Laine promised he'll do better next time. At least until he gets the better of Alex Ovechkin.

Laine scored twice to extend his point streak to 15 games and tie Ovechkin for the NHL goal lead, and the Winnipeg Jets beat the Dallas Stars 4-3 on Sunday night to match the franchise wins record at 43.

The second-year sniper has 43 goals, matching the total from Ovechkin, the Washington star and Laine's boyhood favorite. Laine's point streak is the longest active run in the NHL and adds to his league record for the longest point streak by a teenager. The streak includes 18 goals and eight assists.
