Shorthanded Goals Help Red Wings Snap Skid

The Detroit Red Wings scored two shorthanded goals in the third period Monday night, lifting then to a 2-1 win over the Dallas Stars and ending their losing streak at five games.

Kris Draper scored the first of Detroit's tallies 3:03 into the third period, banging home the puck when a long shot by Nicklas Lidstrom bounced off the back boards and came to him at the side of the net.

Mathieu Schneider put the Red Wings in the lead 9:50 later, taking a pass from Henrik Zetterberg all alone at the blue line and rifling a shot off the bottom of goalie Marty Turco's glove and into the net.

The goals came on two of four Dallas power plays in the final frame.

After a scoreless first period, the Stars opened the scoring at 6:22 of the second, when Antti Miettinen put a shot in from the bottom of the left circle while Detroit netminder Dominik Hasek struggled to get back into position after colliding with Schneider.

Haske finished the night with 20 saves on 21 shots while Turco, who has never won at Joe Louis Arena, stopped 27 of the 29 shots he faced.

Neither team scored on the power play. Detroit had two chances and Dallas had five, including one in the final minute while their net was empty for a 6-on-4.

The Red Wings will look to continue their winning ways when they visit the Minnesota Wild on Friday.

Bring it on, the Wings historically have owned Dallas. If they're gonna snap out of this slump, they need to beat teams like the Stars.

SHORTHANDED GOAL! Kris Draper!

Wings still alive, not passing too well, but still alive.
