"It's been awhile," said Modano, who also had an assist.
"There's certainly some doubt in your game and your ability. I
think you just get to a point ... you quit feeling sorry for
yourself. It's a new day. You start over."
Brenden Morrow also scored for Dallas, 4-12-2 on the road and 0-5-1 in its previous six away games. In 18
road games, the Stars have scored 21 goals.
Turco has allowed two or fewer goals in 12 of his last 14 games, posting a mark of 7-6-1.
Lightning coach John Tortorella was disappointed in how his team
played after a 5-4 overtime win Thursday at Philadelphia.
"It's a kick in the teeth," Tortorella said. "You have to try
and gain momentum. You can't take one step forward and two steps
The Lightning are 3-9-2 in their past 14 games. Dallas' offense
has struggled recently away from home. The Stars have scored just three
times in their previous six road games, including a 1-0 loss at
Florida on Friday.
Boucher, back in the lineup after missing nine games because of
a fractured left orbital bone, had two assists.
The Lightning tied it at 1-1 on St. Louis' short-handed goal with
5:49 left in the second. He picked up a loose puck in the neutral
zone, got around defenseman Sergei Zubov by faking a shot, then
scored after making a nifty move on Turco.
"It means nothing, really," St. Louis said. "It makes the game 2-1."
Dallas responded just 21 seconds later on Morrow's rebound goal.
It was the second power-play goal for Dallas in 41 chances.
"The next power-play unit jumped on, and we were looking to grab
momentum back," Stars coach Dave Tippett said. "Not only did they
grab the momentum back, they got the goal back. To me, that's the
difference in the game."
Lightning had a two-man advantage for 1:47 late in the second, but
Turco made five saves.
He stopped an in-close chance by Dave Andreychuk. Tampa
Bay failed to get a shot during a 63-second, two-man advantage
midway through the third.
"It's a tough situation," Turco said. "The last one, it was a
pivotal point in the game. The game was on the line essentially, and
our workers prevailed."
The Lightning finished 0-for-7 on the power play.
"This is one of those games where our power play could have won
us the game," Andreychuk said. "We have to capitalize on that to
