Mantha helps Red Wings beat Stars 3-1 for 3rd win in 4 games
DETROIT (AP) Anthony Mantha scored the go-ahead goal midway through the second period and the Detroit Red Wings beat the Dallas Stars 3-1 on Tuesday night.
Petr Mrazek stopped 34 shots for the Red Wings, who are 3-0-1 in their last four games for their best stretch in more than a month.
Kari Lehtonen made 17 saves for the Stars. He was pulled for an extra skater with more than 2 minutes left, and the Red Wings took advantage when Steve Ott scored an empty-net goal to make it 3-1 with 1:03 remaining.
Dallas, playing the second of back-to-back games on the road, has dropped two straight and won just three of its last nine overall.
