    Stars 2, CANUCKS 1

    Muller scores winner as Stars beat Canucks

  • Summary

     VANCOUVER (CP) -- Kirk Muller scored the go-ahead goal in the second period and Ed Belfour made 19 saves as the Dallas Stars beat the Vancouver Canucks 2-1 Saturday night.

     Muller broke a 1-1 tie at 14:41 of the second period with his fourth goal of the season when his wraparound attempt went through the crease and caught the far post. Muller has four goals and four assists since signing as a free agent Dec. 15.

     The goal came less than five minutes after Dallas defenceman Sergei Zubov tied the game on a power play with his seventh of the season.

     Vadim Sharifijanov, acquired in a trade with the New Jersey Devils on Friday, scored the lone goal for Vancouver, which has only four wins in its last 23 games and dropped to 14-21-8.

     Sharifijanov, who was 10th in rookie scoring last year, hadn't played an NHL game since Dec. 11 and was a healthy scratchy for the last 15 New Jersey games.

     The 24-year-old right-winger impressed the home-town fans early, opening the scoring 1:36 into the game. Belfour went behind his own net to intercept a dump-in pass, but the puck went past him onto the stick of Sharifijanov, who tapped it into the open net.

     Sharifijanov had a another chance later in the period when Schaefer fed him the puck on a 2-on-1, but Belfour came across with a sweeping pad save.

     Dallas, which improved to 23-17-5, tied the game at 9:09 of the second period when Zubov's slapshot from the blue-line beat a screened Garth Snow. The goal came with one second left in a Dallas power play.

     Dallas outshot Vanvcouver 23-20.

     The Stars were without leading scorer Mike Modano, who is listed as day-to-day after suffering a slight concussion in a game in Calgary last Wednesday.

     Vancouver centre Lubomir Vaic left the game late in the first period with a shoulder injury. He did not return.

     The Canucks also were without defenceman Ed Jovanovski and Alexander Mogilny through injury.
