Trevor Daley broke up a scoreless game with 4:59 left, Richard Bachman made 34 saves to win his second straight start, and the Dallas Stars beat the New York Rangers 1-0 on Tuesday night. It appeared neither team would be able to break through, as few scoring chances were generated during the slogfest that included multiple whistles for icing and offsides. But Daley finally found the net, finishing off a give-and-go play with Mike Ribeiro in the closing minutes. That was enough to give Bachman the win in his second career start. He also beat Los Angeles 2-1 on Sunday at the start of Dallas' five-game trip that spans both coasts. Henrik Lundqvist was the hard-luck loser despite making 27 saves and shaking off a second-period injury. The Rangers lost for only the third time in 10 games (7-2-1). It was a disappointing finish for Brad Richards, who played his first game against the Stars since he signed a nine-year, $60 million deal with the Rangers in July. After defenseman Jeff Woywitka turned over the puck in the New York zone, Daley fed the puck to Ribeiro, took a return pass from him and streaked down the middle to beat Lundqvist from in close for his third goal this season. That was all the offense Dallas needed to win for the fourth time in six games. The Rangers received a major scare in the second period when Lundqvist was felled by a drive from Stars defenseman Sheldon Souray, who is known to have one of the NHL's hardest slap shots. Souray wound up from above the left circle and sent a sizzling shot that struck the New York goalie in the area of his left collarbone as he jumped in anticipation of the impact. He managed to stay in the play for a few seconds until the puck was frozen, and then crumpled forward while leaning on his knees. After flexing his left arm while being attended to by a trainer, Lundqvist got back up on his skates and remained in the game. He skated to the bench for television timeouts later in the period, but appeared to only drink from a water bottle and not receive any more medical attention. The Rangers nearly broke the deadlock late in the second when defenseman Ryan McDonagh fired a drive while New York was short-handed, but Bachman turned it aside. An uneventful first period, in which each team recorded eight fruitless shots, was highlighted by a big collision between Rangers forward Carl Hagelin and Bachman. Hagelin raced into the Dallas end in pursuit of the puck, and Bachman bolted out of his crease into the left circle to try to beat him to it. They both arrived at the same time in a crash that also included Dallas defenseman Alex Goligoski. Hagelin was given a questionable penalty for charging, that Rangers coach John Tortorella vociferously protested from the bench, but New York easily killed it. The Rangers also had one power-play opportunity in the first period, that generated little buzz in the Madison Square Garden crowd. NOTES: The Stars have scored 14 of their 27 third-period goals in the final 10 minutes and are 10-1-1 when scoring in the last 10 minutes. ... Richards played in his 800th NHL game. Dallas LW Loui Eriksson suited up for his 400th. ... The Stars are three games into the trip that began with two games in California at San Jose and Los Angeles. The trip, that will conclude with games against the New York Islanders and New Jersey Devils, will cover over 6,500 miles. The last time the Stars went from the Pacific to Eastern time zone on one trip was in December 2009.
