Stars grab early 1-0 lead

DALLAS -- Good start for the Stars. They get the crowd into it right away with action happening in the offensive zone and James Neal gets a goal 3:36 into the game.

Credit Loui Eriksson for a great pass to Neal, who had a wide open net. Iyla Bryzgalov batted a rebound in the air, but it went to his right and the Stars pounced on it, quickly creating the chance.

Dallas trying to be physical in this one.

BTW, Mark Fistric was a scratch today. He was hit in the third period of the C0lumbus game and had a lower body injury. We'll check on him after the game.
