ROUNDUP

Third-Period Burst Drives Stars' 4-2 Win

January 26, 2003|From Associated Press

A third-period flurry put the Dallas Stars back in a good mood, a day after their 12-game unbeaten streak came to an end.

Pierre Turgeon and Scott Young scored in a 1 minute-48 second span midway through the third period in a 4-2 victory over St. Louis on Saturday night at St. Louis in a matchup of two of the Western Conference's top teams.

"There was a little extra motivation," Dallas goalie Marty Turco said, "but we really don't need much coming in to play St. Louis."

The conference-leading Stars scored three goals in the third, including one from Brenden Morrow. Dallas had been 9-0-3 before a 4-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Friday; the Blues, who entered Saturday's game third in the conference, are 0-2-1 in their last three games.

Turgeon caught St. Louis goalie Brent Johnson out of position at 12:06 of the third, scoring on a bad-angled shot from the goal line, to tie it at 2. Young got his 11th on a two-on-one break with Mike Modano at 13:54, scoring on a wrist shot to put the Stars ahead.

Pavol Demitra and Al MacInnis scored for the Blues, who lost for only the second time when leading after two periods.
