Mike Ribeiro Scores Twice, Stars Beat Blackhawks
CHICAGO (AP) -- Mike Ribeiro broke a tie midway through the second period with his second power-play goal of the game and the Dallas Stars beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-2 on Wednesday night.

Ribeiro scored at 9:14 when his shot from the right circle struck Chicago defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson's right knee and caromed over rookie goalie Corey Crawford's glove.

Dallas' Brenden Morrow also had a power-play goal as the Stars went 3 for 3 with the man advantage and ran their road winning streak to six. Steve Ott added a short-handed, empty-net goal.

Fernando Pisani and Tomas Kopecky scored for Chicago, 1-4-0 in its last five games. The Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks dropped to 12-11-0 at the United Center, where they were 29-8-4 last season.
