DETROIT, Jan. 12 (UPI) -- Brendan Shanahan scored two first-period goals and reached 1,000 career points Saturday as the Detroit Red Wings defeated the Dallas Stars, 5-2, to sweep a five-game homestand.
Shanahan reached the milestone with a slap shot at the 2:39 mark that beat goaltender Marty Turco through the legs. It was his 491st career goal to go with 509 assists.
The 32-year-old left winger scored his 26th goal of the season with 9:47 remaining with a wrist shot from the left side over the left shoulder of Turco.
Mike Modano scored twice for Dallas to extend his goal-scoring streak to five games. His first came at 13:34 of the opening period on the power play as his point shot was skipped off the stick of defenseman Chris Chelios while goaltender Dominik Hasek was screened in front by Brenden Morrow.
Modano, who has seven goals in his last five games, scored his 24th of the season at 13:03 of the second period on a four-on-four situation. His wrist shot from inside the right faceoff circle beat Hasek under the glove to make it 4-2.
Steve Yzerman scored his 12th goal of the season at 5:54 of the second period on the power play, making it 4-1. Shanahan faked a shot from the middle and passed on the right to Yzerman, who flipped the puck in an open side from a tight angle.
Yzerman needs two assists for 1,000 in his career.
