WASHINGTON, Nov. 13 (UPI) -- Bill Guerin scored twice in the second period to break open the game Wednesday night and propel the Dallas Stars to a 6-1 victory over the Washington Capitals, leaving Olaf Kolzig winless against them for another season.
At the 13:26 mark, Guerin streaked along the right boards and ripped a slap shot over Kolzig's catching glove to give Dallas a 3-1 lead. He slipped the puck past Kolzig with one second left before the intermission to extend the lead to 4-1.
Guerin's second tally crossed the goal line as the period ended, causing Kolzig to slam his stick over the crossbar in disgust before heading to the locker room.
Since making his debut in 1989, Kolzig has earned a victory against every other team in the NHL but is winless in all eight starts against Dallas (0-7-1). His worst performance of the season ended a two-game winning streak since missing four games with a wrist injury.
Dallas wasted no time getting to Kolzig as Scott Young opened the scoring 2:09 into the first period when he wristed a one-timer from Brenden Morrow for his first goal of the season.
Playing for the first time since Saturday, Washington had its three-game winning streak snapped as it did little to help the netminder with a lackluster performance.
The Capitals notched just four shots on goal and wasted two power-play chances in the first period before cutting the deficit to 2-1 on Kip Miller's goal at 4:54 of the second period.
Marty Turco made 23 saves to earn the win, bouncing back from his last start when he allowed three goals on 25 shots in a 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders on Sunday.
