Jagr picks up 1,000th assist as Stars top Wild, 5-3

Fans got their money’s worth at American Airlines Center Friday night. Mike Modano was honored prior to the game as a member of the Dallas Stars 20th Anniversary Team. Jaromir Jagr became the 12th player in NHL history to register 1,000 assists. And the Stars picked up a big two points, knocking off the Minnesota Wild, 5-3.

“It was real big for us,” said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan. “We needed the points to claw our way into the top eight.”

The win pushed the Stars (16-14-3) to within one point of that eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

“We know how important every game is,” said Stars center Cody Eakin. “We need to keep going.”

The Stars were able to bounce back in the third period Friday night after giving up the 2-0 lead they had built in the first 7:31 of the game. Four times this season the Stars have squandered two-goal leads and gone on to lose games. This time around they found a way to win.

“We’ve had plenty of those two-goal leads lately and not been able to hold them,” said Stars goaltender Kari Lehtonen. “It sucks, but it was nice that we regrouped well and played the last 20 like we did the first 20. That was great.”
