"I wasn't sure if I had an angle to put it in or not so I
thought I'd try it and it ends up going straight in,'' said Young,
who one-timed a sharp angle shot past Alex Auld for his seventh
goal in five games.
Canucks coach Marc Crawford was upset Young even got the chance
after Hatcher's hit.
"To fight through all we had to fight through, it's unfortunate a game is decided on a blown call,'' Crawford said. "It was a late hit and regardless of whether it was late, it was a high hit. Was Trevor's a penalty? Yes, but we shouldn't have been in that predicament because two officials shouldn't have missed that.''
Jason Arnott and Sergei Zubov also scored for the Stars, who stayed within a point of first-place Detroit in the Western Conference, three ahead of Vancouver.
Bertuzzi and Naslund both added two assists, and Brendan
Morrison also scored for the Canucks, who are just four points up
on Colorado in the Northwest Division.
"In the third we picked it up, but we've got to play a solid 60
minutes,'' said Naslund, who leads the league with 99 points.
Marty Turco made 27 saves for his second straight win since
coming back from a high ankle sprain. He also extended his unbeaten
streak to 16 games -- 12-0-4 -- dating to Dec. 29.
"It feels great,'' Turco said of the injury that kept him out
of 18 games. "It felt sharp only being my second game back and I
felt good personally despite making some mistakes out there.''
Turco was beaten from a sharp angle by Naslund and took a
penalty with 7:45 left for pummeling Trevor Letowski after the two
got tangled in the crease. Bertuzzi banged in Naslund's rebound on
the ensuing power play to tie it.
"If it would have ended up a tie game I would have been totally
disappointed,'' Turco said.
Morrison opened the scoring in the final minute of a
tight-checking first period, but the Stars dominated in the second.
Dallas was outshooting Vancouver 7-0 when Arnott tied it at 6:54
by redirecting Stu Barnes' pass past Auld.
"The second period we came out jumping, we were hungry for pucks and I thought we dictated play,'' Stars coach Dave Tippet said.
Zubov gave Dallas the lead on the power play with four minutes
left in the period that saw the Stars outshoot Vancouver 14-3.
After hitting the post once and having a shot bounce out just 15
seconds earlier, Zubov got another shot. This time he took Young's
drop pass and ripped the puck over Auld's glove, off the post and
in with four minutes left in the second.
Turco, who quickly played the puck up ice to Young after Zubov's
first shot was cleared, picked up the second assist.
Auld made his second straight start, supplanting former backup Peter Skudra as the second-string goalie while Dan Cloutier recovers from a nagging right knee injury. Auld, recalled from the AHL on Sunday, made 30 saves.
Cloutier, who returned for two games last week after
missing 10, skated for 15 minutes Tuesday morning and said he
expects to return Thursday against Phoenix. ... Barnes, acquired
from Buffalo just before the trade deadline, has a point in six
straight games. ... Dallas is 11-2-2-1 against Canadian teams this
season, including 3-1 against Vancouver. ... Auld was 2-0 against
Dallas, including a win in his first NHL game Jan. 23 of last
season and a 4-2 victory in Dallas last Monday.
