DALLAS (AP) _ Lubos Bartecko scored the tiebreaking goal in the second period and goaltender Roman Turek stopped 19 shots against his former team as the St. Louis Blues beat the Dallas Stars 3-1 on Friday night.

Turek, the backup to Ed Belfour in the Stars’ run to the Stanley Cup championship last season, is 2-0 against Dallas this season since being traded to St. Louis.

Belfour made 22 saves as the Stars had their three-game winning streak snapped.

Bartecko scored his 11th goal off a goalmouth feed from Michal Handzus at 11:05 of the second period to break the 1-1 tie.

Craig Conroy added an empty-netter with 12.5 seconds left.

The Stars took a 1-0 lead at 5:07 of the first period when Brenden Morrow gloved a high centering pass and beat Turek from in front of the net for Morrow’s sixth goal.

The Blues drew even at 12:53 of the first when defenseman Todd Reirden’s shot from the right point beat a screened Belfour for Reirden’s third goal.

Dallas is without three of its top players, all out with injuries: defenseman Derian Hatcher, center Joe Nieuwendyk and left wing Jere Lehtinen.
