Dallas 2, Toronto 1

DALLAS, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- Pierre Turgeon and Jason Arnott accounted for the Dallas scoring Friday night as the Stars spoiled the return of goaltender Ed Belfour with a 2-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

A member of the Stars' Stanley Cup winning team in 1998, Belfour played five seasons in Dallas before signing with Toronto as a free agent.

The Stars wasted little time in getting to their former teammate. Just 2:13 into the contest, defenseman Phillipe Boucher' shot deflected off teammate Jere Lehtinen and to Turgeon, who fired the puck into an empty net.

Arnott extended the lead to 2-0 at 3:52 of the second period when he took a back pass from Bill Guerin and wristed it past Belfour.

Marty Turco, who was kept by the Stars because he was younger and more inexpensive than Belfour, turned aside 22 shots. He has allowed just four goals in his last three starts.

Tom Fitzgerald scored Toronto's only goal, beating Turco with a slap shot inside the blue line with 7:48 remaining.
