Wings stop Stars, continue hot streak

DETROIT — Anthony Mantha scored the go-ahead goal midway through the second period and the Red Wings beat the Stars 3-1 on Tuesday night.

Petr Mrazek stopped 34 shots for the Red Wings, who are 3-0-1 in their last four games for their best stretch in more than a month.

Kari Lehtonen made 17 saves for the Stars. He was pulled for an extra skater with more than two minutes left, and the Red Wings took advantage when Steve Ott scored an empty-net goal to make it 3-1 with 1:03 remaining.

Dallas, playing the second of back-to-back games on the road, has dropped two straight and won just three of its last nine overall.

Detroit's Tomas Jurco made his season debut, returning from offseason back surgery.

Dave Strader, the Stars' TV play-by-play announcer, who was diagnosed with cancer this year, attended the game and announced the team's lineup in the locker room beforehand.

GAME HIGHLIGHTS: Jimmy Vesey scored a tiebreaking power-play goal with 5:12 remaining to lift the Rangers to a 3-2 victory over the Hurricanes, snapping a four-game home skid (0-3-1). Defenseman Ron Hainsey received a double-minor for hooking and an unsportsmanlike misconduct with 6:47 to go and Vesey took advantage for his eighth goal of the season and first since Nov. 12. Viktor Stalberg scored twice in the first period in his first game back in New York since leaving the Rangers to sign with Carolina in the offseason.

AROUND THE LEAGUE: Stars left wing Travis Moen retired at age 34 after 12 seasons. Moen helped the Ducks win the Stanley Cup in 2007. He also played for Chicago, San Jose and Montreal. Moen was bothered by a broken wrist and lower-body injuries last season. For his career, the Saskatchewan native finished with 59 goals and 77 assists. … Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews was held out Tuesday, sidelined by an upper-body injury for the third straight game. The center is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Devils.
