Stars tie it up, 2-2

Finally, the Stars have broken through. Brad Richards just fired a slap shot from the point, and it was deflected by Loui Eriksson over the shoulder of Jason LaBarbera. Great play by Eriksson, who was closely guarded in front.

That ties the score at 2-2 with 12:49 left in the game. The Stars seem to have more energy left than the Coyotes, who had the late game last night. But Phoenix is trying to extend an eight-game winning streak, so it's anybody's game.
