Stars 2, Hurricanes 1
Dec. 09, 1999
DALLAS (AP) _ Guy Carbonneau's goal with 1:38 left to play lifted the Dallas Stars to a 2-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday night.
A sliding Juha Lind nudged a pass from behind the net to the 39-year-old Carbonneau in the slot. Carbonneau skated to his right and lifted a shot over Carolina goalie Arturs Irbe for his fourth goal of the season.
Dallas' Brett Hull scored the tying goal in the second period, the 597th of his career.
Ron Francis' first-period goal was the only scoring for the Hurricanes.
Carolina continued to sizzle on the power play with Francis cashing in on a man-advantage situation at 14:39 of the first period. Francis' sixth goal gave the Hurricanes 11 power play goals in 31 chances.
Hull tied it at 1 at 11:30 of the second period on a drive from 45 feet that beat Irbe, who was screened by his own defenseman.
The goal was Hull's 11th of the season as he seeks to become the 12th player in league history to reach 600 goals. Hull's father, Bobby, had 610 career goals.
Irbe stopped 26 shots for Carolina.
Ed Belfour made 15 saves for the Stars, 2-4-2 in their last eight home games.
Dallas activated right wing Grant Marshall after missing 22 games with a groin injury.
