Daley, Stars nip Wings
Trevor Daley knocked his own rebound into the goal 1:51 into overtime to give the Stars a 5-4 victory over Detroit last night in Dallas, ending the Red Wings' six-game winning streak.
In a flurry of activity in front of Detroit goalie Chris Osgood, Daley took a shot that got knocked down but was still on the ice when he followed up for his fourth goal of the season - and Dallas' only lead.
The Stars, who trailed, 3-1, after the first period, forced overtime when Steve Ott scored with 3 minutes left in regulation. Ott took a crossing pass from Mike Ribeiro and knocked the puck into the left side of the net when Osgood was unable to recover.
Osgood stopped a season-high 45 shots, but couldn't save the Red Wings, whose winning streak included a 6-1 victory over Dallas last week.
Pavel Datsyuk had a goal and two assists for the Red Wings, giving him 18 points in the past 11 games.
The Red Wings took a 4-3 lead with 14:41 left when Datsyuk worked the puck most of the length down the left side of the ice, shed defender Darryl Sydor, and scored.
Dallas almost had a tying goal right after that but James Neal's shot hit the crossbar, bounced straight down in front of the line, and was secured by Osgood after Loui Eriksson swiped and missed the puck.
Turco, pulled in the second period of Thursday's loss at Detroit, had 26 saves and is now 4-11-5 in his career against the Red Wings.
In a late game Sunday night, Anaheim's Chris Kunitz scored twice in the third period to help the Ducks beat the New Jersey Devils, 4-3, in Anaheim, Calif.
The Winter Classic drew the biggest television audience for a regular-season NHL game in nearly 34 years.

That's the most since a Philadelphia-New York Rangers game Feb. 23, 1975, according to
