SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Mike Modano scored the tiebreaking goal
early in the Dallas Stars' four-goal third period, and Marty Turco
made 29 saves in a 5-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks in Game 2
on Sunday night.
Brad Richards scored the tying goal on an awful San Jose
turnover in the opening minute of the third period, and Niklas
Hagman added two insurance goals in the Stars' eighth victory in
their last nine trips to San Jose. Mike Ribeiro also scored an
early goal before Dallas put a tremendous finish on another
profitable night at the Shark Tank.
Dallas hasn't reached the conference finals since 2000, when the
Stars beat San Jose in the second round on the way to their second
straight Stanley Cup finals appearance.
