Dallas Stars right wing Michael Ryder did his best to downplay Saturday night's festivities. Ryder burned his former team by scoring to cap a three-goal first period as the Stars snapped the Boston Bruins' seven-game winning streak with a 4-2 home triumph. "It's very nice to score against them, but I'm just happy to get the win and show that we can compete against the top teams in the league," Ryder said. After playing a pivotal role in the Bruins' magical Stanley Cup run in the spring, Ryder signed a two-year, $7 million deal with Dallas in the offseason. He quickly reintroduced himself to his former mates by scoring with 40 seconds left in the first period. After accepting Jamie Benn's brilliant cross-slot feed, Ryder deked to his left before backhanding the puck past Tim Thomas for his team-leading 15th goal of the season and sixth in seven games.
