SNAPPED
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.

SIDELINED
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.

WORLD HOCKEY
