Turco Drags 0-7-2 Record At 'The Joe' Into Conference Finals

By  | 

DALLAS -- Dallas goaltender Marty Turco is coming off an amazing performance that helped land the Stars in the Western Conference finals.

Game one is Thursday night at Detroit.

Turco had a franchise-record 61 saves in a quadruple-overtime
victory Sunday that ended the second-round series against the San
Jose Sharks.

Turco outdueled reigning Stanley Cup champion Jean-Sebastien
Giguere of Anaheim in the first round, then topped Vezina Trophy
finalist Evgeni Nabokov in the second round.

Stars captain Brenden Morrow says Turco has been spectacular in
making the hard saves look easy.

Morrow adds: "It's been a lot of fun to watch."

The last time the Stars won in Detroit, backup Mike Smith got
the victory.

The time before that, it was another of Turco's backups, Johan
Hedberg.
