ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Mike Modano scored two goals to lead the Dallas Stars to a 3-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Sunday night.

Ed Belfour, who recently criticized coach Ken Hitchcock for his frequent use of backup Marty Turco, made 25 saves and had a shutout for 2 1/2 periods.

The Wild lost for just the second time in seven games, failing to create any strong scoring chances for most of the game despite outshooting the Stars 26-16.
