WASHINGTON (AP) -Marty Turco made 49 saves, Brad Richards had a goal and an assist, and the Dallas Stars scored three times in six shots early in the third period en route to a 4-3 shootout victory over the Capitals on Monday night, ending Washington's club-record home winning streak at 13 games.

Washington's Alex Ovechkin snapped a season-high, six-game goal drought by scoring twice to match Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby for the league lead with 44. Ovechkin's second goal came with 3:16 left in the third period and tied the game.

But Turco stopped Ovechkin in the opening round of the shootout, and the Stars went on to take it 2-1, with Richards and Loui Eriksson beating Semyon Varlamov.
