Stars rally to get by Senators

DALLAS -- Bill Guerin redirected Sergei Zubov's shot from the blue line with 5:24 left, sending the Stars past the Ottawa Senators 5-3 on Monday night in a showdown between the NHL's top teams.

Guerin's 22nd goal put the Western Conference-leading Stars ahead for the first time, then Mike Modano sealed it by scoring into an empty net with 36.3 seconds left.

East-leading Ottawa blew leads of 2-0 and 3-2, with all its goals coming on Martin Havlat's third career hat trick. The Senators remain one point ahead in the race for the Presidents' Trophy.

Dallas got goals from Brenden Morrow and Modano 41 seconds apart, but Havlat restored the lead 64 seconds later.

Scott Young scored at 9:15 of the third before Guerin's winner.

PREDATORS 5, SABRES 1: Vitali Yachmenev and Rem Murray scored 58 seconds apart as visiting Nashville scored three times in the first period. Chris Gratton scored with 15:22 left to spoil Tomas Vokoun's bid for his first shutout of the season.

CANUCKS: Defenseman Ed Jovanovski and forward Trevor Linden signed three-year contract extensions.

FLYERS: Former coach Terry Murray was hired as an assistant to coach Ken Hitchcock.

THRASHERS: Goalie Byron Dafoe was activated from injured reserve.

ALL-STAR GAME: Toronto goaltender Ed Belfour (back) will be replaced by Ottawa's Patrick Lalime, and Rangers defenseman Brian Leetch (ankle) will be replaced by teammate Tom Poti. Montreal center Saku Koivu will miss the game to have an exam to monitor his recovery from abdominal cancer and Florida's Olli Jokinen will take his place.
