Piatti scored from the penalty spot in the 25th minute, and Jack McInerney added a second shortly after halftime for Montreal's second straight victory.

Montreal (2-3-2) won consecutive games for the first time since August 2013.

Defender Matt Hedges scored for Dallas (6-3-3) late in the second half, but it wasn't enough to keep the team's five-game unbeaten run alive.
