Ray Whitney has goal, assist as Dallas Stars win 4th straight by beating Predators 5-2

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Rookie Alex Chiasson scored two goals, and the Dallas Stars beat the Nashville Predators 5-2 on Friday night for their fourth straight win as they try to keep their improbable playoff hopes alive.

Ray Whitney had a power-play goal and an assist, and Erik Cole and Tom Wandell had a goal apiece. Vern Fiddler also had two assists for the Stars, who started the night 10th in the Western Conference — three points behind eighth-place Detroit.

Richard Bachman stopped 26 shots and improved to 5-3. He started in place of Kari Lehtonen, who was scratched because of a lower body injury.

Taylor Beck and Bobby Butler scored for Nashville, which has lost five straight and eight of nine.

Dallas also snapped a four-game skid against Nashville and avoided being swept this season by their future division rival.

Quote of the Day

I didn't even know how to celebrate. I threw my hands up, they gave me a hug, so I guess that's all I needed.
