Stars spoil Red Wings' home opener, 2-1

Posted: Updated:

Michael Ryder scored in the first and third periods, and Kari Lehtonen came within 3.4 seconds of a shutout in the Dallas Stars' 2-1 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night.

Lehtonen made 39 saves, but allowed Damien Brunner's first career goal in the final seconds. Ryder had already added an insurance goal with 14:26 to play.

Detroit's Jimmy Howard had 30 saves -- including 16 in the second period -- to keep his team in it.

Jaromir Jagr went without a point for Dallas for a second straight game after posting two goals and two assists in the season opener Saturday.
