Stars keep Red Wings from sweep

May 15, 2008|From the Associated Press

DALLAS -- Detroit's goal with a guy barely in the crease, if at all, didn't count. Dallas' goal with a guy clearly in the crease did count.

Apparently, that's what it takes to slow the Red Wings.

Loui Ericksson's goal about 12 minutes after Detroit's was waved off, and third-period goals from Mike Modano and Brenden Morrow sent the Stars past the Red Wings, 3-1, on Wednesday night, preventing the Western Conference finals from ending in a sweep.

Game 5 is Saturday at Detroit.

Detroit lost for the first time since April 16, ending a nine-game winning streak that was the team's longest in a postseason. Goalie Chris Osgood ended a 9-0 run, giving up one goal fewer than he had in the previous three games combined.

Dallas goalie Marty Turco made 34 saves, turning away 14 shots in the second period and 15 more in the third to beat Detroit for only the third time in 21 tries.
