Dallas' Turco puts Reigning Champs on Brink of Elimination

Staff Report
The Associated Press

DALLAS (AP) - Stu Barnes and Steve Ott scored third-period goals and Marty Turco came within 7.6 seconds of a shutout, sending the Dallas Stars past the Anaheim Ducks 3-1 and putting the reigning Stanley Cup champions on the brink of elimination.

Dallas leads the first-round series 3-1 going into Game 5 in Anaheim on Friday night.

Turco and the Stars are seeking their first postseason series win since a first-rounder in 2003, having dropped four straight. Anaheim, meanwhile, is a loss away from continuing a dismal streak for defending champs - none has reached the second round since Colorado in 2002.
