PHOENIX, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Pierre Turgeon scored the go-ahead goal with 7:54 remaining Saturday night as the Dallas Stars remained unbeaten with a 5-2 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes.
Turgeon's first goal of the season came on a outstanding play involving and Brenden Morrow. Morrow was behind the net and skated easily by defenseman Ossi Vaananen, who tried to block his pass. Morrow fed Turgeon, who put the puck from the doorstep through goaltender Sean Burke's pads.
The Coyotes took a 2-1 lead after two periods but numerous defensive lapses led to a disastrous third period.
Just 5:35 into the third, Dallas tied it on Ulf Dahlen's goal. Back for a second stint with the Stars, Dahlen took a pass in the low slot from defenseman Darryl Sydor and lifted the puck over Burke's right shoulder.
Bill Guerin scored on an odd-man rush to give Dallas a 4-2 lead with 75 seconds remaining, giving him three goals and seven points in his first three games as a Star.
Ron Tugnutt made 28 saves in his debut for Dallas, which improved to 8-3-1 in its last 12 trips to Phoenix.
