Penguins Tripped Up In Dallas

DALLAS (AP) — Loui Eriksson scored twice — including a penalty-shot goal — Kari Lehtonen made 21 saves, and the Dallas Stars earned a fight-filled 5-2 victory over Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night.

A frustrated Crosby, who entered the night with only four penalty minutes this season and rarely fights, squared off against Matt Niskanen at 12:33 of the second period while Pittsburgh trailed 4-1. That was one of four bouts in the first two periods.

Stephane Robidas and Brad Richards each had a goal and an assist for Dallas. Steve Ott added a goal, and James Neal had two assists for the Stars.

Tyler Kennedy and Matt Cooke scored for the Penguins, who opened a stretch of three games in four nights against Western Conference opponents.
