Top line leads Stars past Red Wings, Modano

By AP

DALLAS – The top line of Brad Richards, Loui Eriksson and James Neal had goals, Kari Lehtonen made 25 saves and Dallas beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-1 on Thursday night in Stars career scoring leader Mike Modano's first game in Texas as a visiting player.

Brenden Morrow added his fourth goal in three games, and Richards and Mike Ribeiro had two assists each for the Stars (3-0) in their home opener.

Dallas was unable to string together three victories all of last season.

Niklas Kronwall's power-play goal at 11:25 of the third period ended Lehtonen's bid for his 15th career shutout.
