Defenseman Karlis Skrastins had his first career two-goal game and the Dallas Stars ended Detroit's four-game winning streak with a 4-3 win over the Red Wings on Saturday.

Skrastins fired over the left shoulder of goaltender Jimmy Howard for the go-ahead goal 1:16 into the third period. He earlier assisted on one of James Neal's two goals.

The Stars are 5-0-2 in their last seven home games and have beaten the Red Wings in the last four meetings in Dallas.

Tomas Holmstrom, Pavel Datsyuk and Todd Bertuzzi scored for Detroit.
