Blackhawks Lose to Dallas
DALLAS (AP) -- Steve Ott had two goals, including a tiebreaking power-play tally early in the third period, and the Dallas Stars beat Chicago 5-4 on Tuesday night to end the Blackhawks' three-game winning streak.

Ott skated up the middle, split two defenders, and fired a wrist shot past Antti Niemi to make it 5-4 at 4:07 of the final period.

Loui Eriksson and Ott scored for the Stars in a 35-second span early in the second period.

Dallas' Mike Modano added his 549th goal, tying Ron Francis for 25th on the career list. Mike Ribeiro also scored and Brad Richards had two assists for the Stars, 7-1-2 in their last 10 at home.

Chicago's Patrick Kane scored twice, giving him seven goals in his last five games.
