Stars Easily Handle Turco SO to Beat Blackhawks
DALLAS (AP) -- Brenden Morrow, Brad Richards and Mike Ribeiro converted in the shootout against former Dallas goaltender Marty Turco, and the Stars rallied from a three-goal first-period deficit for a 4-3 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night.

All three Dallas shooters beat Turco to the stick side and the Stars ended their season-worst four-game winless streak (0-3-1).

Jonathan Toews beat Stars goaltender Kari Lehtonen in the first round to match Morrow's goal, but Richards scored in the second round and Lehtonen denied Patrick Sharp's second-round bid.

Ribeiro was mobbed by teammates after his third-round goal clinched the extra point.
