Stars shut out Thrashers

Marty Turco made 25 saves for his 35th career shutout and the Dallas Stars beat the Atlanta Thrashers 2-0 on Tuesday night.

Jere Lehtinen and Steve Ott scored for the Stars to back Turco’s first shutout of the season. He has won all seven of his games against Atanta.

The Thrashers, shut out for the fourth time this season, wasted Kari Lehtonen’s 31-save performance.
