Stars roll past Hurricanes, 8-2
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- The Dallas Stars erupted for four goals in the first period en route to an 8-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes in the opener of the Traverse City prospects tournament on Saturday at Center ICE Arena.

Matt Fraser scored two of his three goals in the opening 20 minutes, as did Matt Tassone and Stephen Schultz. Scott Glennie and Brett Ritchie each notched three assists for the Stars in the contest.

Matej Stransky, Jamie Oleksiak and Fraser scored in the second for Dallas and Carolina's Tyler Carroll ended the shutout bid 9:16 into the second, when the Stars opened a 7-1 advantage. Matt Carter closed out the scoring for the victors in the third and Victor Rask struck for the Hurricanes at 15:43.

Tyler Beskorowany stopped 16 shots to earn the victory in goal for Dallas while Matt Mahalek, who was pulled after two periods, turned aside 19 of 26 shots for Carolina.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
