DALLAS (AP) - Samuel Pahlsson scored the tiebreaking goal with 3:15 remaining and the Anaheim Mighty Ducks ended Dallas' eight-game home winning steak with a 2-1 victory over the Stars on Monday night.

With the score tied 1-1, Dallas defenseman Janne Niinimaa turned the puck over to Pahlsson deep in the Dallas zone and Pahlsson got his sixth goal of the season past goalie Marty Turco from the left circle.

Anaheim, winner of seven of its last nine, moved into a tie with Colorado for sixth place in the Western Conference, one point ahead of Los Angeles and Edmonton. The Avalanche and Kings played later Monday.

Antii Miettinen had a power-play goal for the Pacific Division-leading Stars, whose home streak matched the second-longest in franchise history.

Miettinen's score on a rebound gave the Stars a 1-0 lead at 3:19 of the second period.

Andy McDonald tied it with his 25th goal of the season at 5:57 of the third period while the teams skated 4-on-4.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 24 saves for the Mighty Ducks, who lost their first four meetings with the Stars this season.

Turco, who stopped 16 shots, came up with a key save on Rob Niedermayer's power-play deflection at 3:58 of the second period.

Dallas, which had won its previous four games, held an 8-3 shots edge in a scoreless opening period.
