NHL ROUNDUP : Hockey in Dallas Gets Off to Good Start as Stars Win

From Associated Press

The debut of the Dallas Stars couldn't have been better if owner Norm Green had written the script himself.

The Stars took an early 2-0 lead and held on for a 6-4 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday at Dallas before a sellout crowd of 16,914 that included NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman.

The Stars, who moved to Dallas from the Minneapolis area, got goals from Neil Broten and Mike Modano in a 31-second span of the first period.

Detroit goalie Tim Cheveldae suffered a strained ligament and is expected to miss at least two to four weeks.

Philadelphia 4, Pittsburgh 3--Eric Lindros scored the game-tying goal in the first period and added two assists, the second on the go-ahead goal by Dimitri Yushkevich, as the Flyers rallied at Philadelphia.

Lindros' goal at 18:55 of the first period. It brought the Flyers back from an early 2-0 deficit.

Boston 4, N.Y. Rangers 3--Ray Bourque was a loser in an arbitration hearing earlier in the day, but stated his case on the ice, setting up Joe Juneau's winning goal with 5:17 to play as the Bruins won at New York.

Bourque was awarded a two-year, $4.5-million deal, about half the amount he was seeking in a contract dispute.

Calgary 2, N.Y. Islanders 1--Joe Nieuwendyk scored the game-winning goal in the third period to lead the Flames at Calgary.

Calgary's other goal was scored by Theoren Fleury in the first period on a power play. Nieuwendyk earned an assist.
