Stars flame out
Lose to Flames
DALLAS (AP) - Alex Tanguay converted in the second round of the
shootout after scoring late in regulation, Miikka Kiprusoff stopped
all three Dallas shooters, and the Calgary Flames snapped a
three-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Stars on
Tanguay beat Kari Lehtonen for the only goal in the tiebreaker.
Kiprusoff stopped Loui Eriksson and Brad Richards in the first two
rounds, and Dallas' Mike Ribeiro failed to get off a clean shot in
the third round.
Brenden Morrow had given the Stars a 2-1 lead at 2:41 of the
third period, knocking the rebound of his own shot past Kiprusoff.
But with Kiprusoff on the bench for a sixth attacker, Tanguay tied
it with 1:21 left in regulation on a wrist shot from the high slot
that beat Lehtonen to the stick side.
Ribeiro scored a power-play goal and Lehtonen stopped 31 shots
for the Stars, 10-0-3 in their last 13 at home. Kiprusoff made 14
saves and Anton Babchuk scored on the power play for the Flames.
