Dallas goalie Marty Turco, who can become an unrestricted free agent Thursday, has reportedly turned down a preliminary offer from the Flyers. Turco, 34, was offered a three-year deal for a little over $6 million, ESPN.com reported. The Flyers were granted permission to talk with the goalie. The Flyers are also negotiating with San Jose goalie Evgeni Nabokov, another potential free agent. They have also had talks with the agent for goalie Michael Leighton. - Sam Carchidi

Marty Turco has quite an opportunity in front of him. The Dallas goalie is 0-9-2 in the NHL at Joe Louis Arena, where he will have a chance to stop nagging questions and extend the Western Conference finals against the Detroit Red Wings. "It's nothing short of an exciting challenge for all of us, and for me personally," Turco said after helping the Stars stave off elimination. Stars forward Steve Ott said the stage will be set perfectly for Turco tomorrow in Game 5. "He wants that win probably more than anybody," Ott said.

MONTREAL - Chris Drury scored his 10th goal and the Buffalo Sabres set a new team record by extending their season-opening winning streak to nine games with a 4-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens last night. Buffalo moved to within one victory of tying Toronto's league record of 10 straight wins at the start of the 1993-94 season. The Sabres matched their previous mark of eight, set in 1975-76, with a 6-2 win in Boston on Saturday. Ryan Miller made 26 saves, losing a bid for his first shutout of the season on Mike Johnson's goal 9 minutes, 6 seconds into the third.

Ed Belfour got the night off and rookie Marty Turco got his first career NHL victory. Turco's job was made easier when the visiting Dallas Stars scored three times in a three-minute span of the second period to beat the Chicago Blackhawks, 5-1, last night. "It made me feel real good sitting in the other end watching that spurt. We always expect tight games," Turco said after the Stars' fourth straight win. "The good advice I got from Eddie was never play the clock," said Turco, a star at the University of Michigan whose win came in front of family and friends.

The first goal Marty Turco gave up was as ugly as they come. Mike Modano's second looked picture perfect for surging Dallas. Dallas' slow start is a thing of the past, and the Pacific Division-leading Stars (13-7-4) are showing signs of being the good team they were expected to be. Modano scored his second goal of the game 35 seconds into overtime, Turco made 23 saves, and visiting Dallas beat the New York Islanders last night, 3-2, for the Stars' sixth straight win. Modano knocked in a rebound from the slot of Stephane Robidas' shot to give the Stars' their first win over the Islanders since March 23, 2001 (1-5-0-1)

Inspired by the return of Sergei Fedorov and Mike Green - or perhaps by the presence of a 6-7 Web site producer sitting on the bench as their backup goalie - the Washington Capitals maintained their home-ice dominance last night with a 5-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators. Alexander Semin, Brooks Laich and Green all scored for the first time this month, Alex Ovechkin got his 16th and 17th goals of the season, and Brent Johnson made 32 saves for the Capitals, who improved to an Eastern Conference-best 12-1-1 at the Verizon Center.

Mike Modano didn't have to think too long to remember the last time he was scoring goals in bunches. "Three weeks ago," the 13-year NHL veteran said. Modano scored two goals last night, leading Dallas Stars to a 3-1 victory over host Minnesota. Modano, who scored twice in a 5-2 loss to Detroit on Saturday, has nine goals in his last six games and 26 for the season, which ties him for second in the NHL. Modano also scored in six consecutive games from Dec. 2-15. "I don't try to analyze things or think too much," Modano said.

Marty Turco got the record. The Dallas Stars got the top seed. Turco's seventh shutout of the season dropped his goals-against average to 1.72, lowest in the NHL's modern era, and Stu Barnes and Ulf Dahlen scored power-play goals as the Stars beat visiting Nashville, 2-0, yesterday to wrap up the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. Just when fans began cheering "Mar-ty" in the closing minutes, Detroit lost in overtime to Chicago, meaning if Dallas held on it would have 111 points - one more than the Red Wings.

DALLAS - The Dallas Stars got nearly everything they were seeking when the Western Conference finals shifted back to Texas on Monday. The fact that Detroit won, 5-2, suggests that maybe the Stars are looking for something that isn't out there. They got the better scoring chances early, outshooting the Red Wings, 5-0, in the first few minutes. They got the Red Wings to take penalties, giving Dallas a 7-minute edge in power-play time. They won 43 percent of the faceoffs, which may sound awful given that they were at home, but after winning 38 percent and 29 percent in Games 1 and 2, at least the Stars got to play with the puck a little more frequently.

Marty Turco and the rest of the Dallas Stars could have been forgiven for figuring this was a lost cause. They trailed by two goals after two periods against Alex Ovechkin and the NHL-leading Washington Capitals, a team seemingly en route to a 14th consecutive home victory and fourth straight win overall. Plus, the Stars have been fading: Entering yesterday, they were 0-3 and had been outscored 17-5 since the end of the Olympic break. So much for all that. With Turco in the net on this night, anything was possible.
