NIEUWENDYK HURTS DUCKS.

Byline: Associated Press

Joe Nieuwendyk scored four goals as the injury-depleted Dallas Stars stopped a winless streak at five games with a fight-filled 6-3 victory over the Mighty Ducks Friday night in Dallas.

Injuries kept nine of the Stars' top 18 skaters off the ice, including leading scorer Mike Modano and top defensemen Derian Hatcher and Sergei Zubov.

Nieuwendyk stepped up to fill the void left by Modano, boosting his goal total to 31 this season. Stars backup goalie Roman Turek stopped 22 shots to stretch his unbeaten string to five games (4-0-1) and push the Mighty Ducks' losing streak to seven games.

A five-minute elbowing penalty by Dallas defenseman Craig Ludwig against Ducks star Teemu Selanne with 4:08 touched off a series of fights and resulted in seven game misconducts between the teams.

With both benches depleted by game misconducts, Matt Cullen and Sean Pronger scored for the Ducks over the final 2:47 and Nieuwendyk added his fourth goal, one short of his career high, with 1:08 left.
