ANAHEIM, Calif., Feb. 16 (UPI) -- Two second-period power-play goals by Stephane Robidas Friday night lifted the Dallas Stars to a 4-2 victory over Anaheim.
The Stars, who saw their seven-game winning streak halted 24 hours earlier, bounced back to capture a key division contest.
First-place Dallas expanded its lead over second-place Anaheim to six points in the Pacific Division. The Stars, with the second-best record in the Western Conference, also moved within 10 points of front-running Detroit -- losers of five in a row.
Dallas overcame a 1-0 deficit on Mike Ribeiro's power-play goal late in the first period. Robidas then beat Jean-Sebastien Giguere twice with the man advantage.
He scored on a slapshot 4:56 into the second to give Dallas the lead, and then he tipped in a shot by Mike Modano with 1:39 remaining in the stanza.
Marty Turco, who had a five-game winning streak snapped in the loss to Phoenix Thursday, made 20 saves for the Stars.
