ANAHEIM, Calif. - Mark Parrish recorded his sixth career hat trick in his Dallas debut and the Stars beat the Anaheim Ducks 5-2 on Friday night.
Parrish, who signed a one-year deal with Dallas on Wednesday, had two power-play goals and a breakaway tally in the first 26 minutes of play. Fabian Brunnstrom and Brad Richards also scored for the Stars. Mike Ribeiro added two assists as Dallas ended a three-game winless streak.
Marty Turco made 28 saves while holding the opposition to two goals or less for just the second time in eleven appearances this season.
Brendan Morrison and Teemu Selanne scored for the Ducks, who lost in regulation for the first time since a 3-1 setback against Carolina on October 19.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
