-Marty Turco, Stars, made 38 saves to lift Dallas to a 2-1 win over Detroit and extend the Western Conference finals to six games.

Dallas goalie Marty Turco snapped his 11-game winless streak (0-9-2) at Joe Louis Arena on Saturday, stopping 38 shots to give the Stars a 2-1 victory and cut Detroit's lead to 3-2 in the Western Conference finals. The Red Wings lost at home for the first time in eight playoff games.

Detroit was without center Johan Franzen for the fourth straight Western Conference finals game Saturday because of concussion-like symptoms. He already set a franchise-record with 12 playoff goals before the Red Wings' 2-1 loss to Dallas cut their series lead to 3-2.

Finland beat Sweden 4-0 Saturday for the bronze medal at the IIHF World Hockey Championship behind first-period goals by Antti Pihlstrom and Janne Niskala and 36 saves by Minnesota Wild goalie Niklas Backstrom. Canada and Russia play for the gold medal Sunday.

Dallas has won the last two games of the Western Conference finals against Detroit after dropping the first three. In the Stars' previous series against San Jose, they won the first three before dropping the next two and eventually prevailing in Game 6, a four-overtime affair.

``It's probably the best I've felt in this building ever.'' - Dallas goalie Marty Turco after winning at Detroit's Joe Louis Arena for the first time in 12 games (1-9-2) as the Stars edged the Red Wings 2-1 Saturday to cut their Western Conference finals deficit to 3-2.
