(DALLAS) - The first win for the Dallas Stars this season was No. 782 of Ken Hitchcock's career. And that's a significant figure for NHL coaches. Now in his second stint with Dallas, Hitchcock tied Al Arbour for third place on the all-time wins list Tuesday night. John Klingberg and Tyler Seguin scored first-period goals, and the Stars never trailed in a 4-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings. Anthony Mantha's goal with 4:49 remaining pulled Detroit (2-1) within one, but the Red Wings couldn't tie the game even with goalie Petr Mrazek pulled for the final 2:56. Mattias Janmark scored in the second period for the Stars (1-2), and Martin Hanzal put the puck into an empty net with 2 seconds remaining. Ben Bishop made 23 saves. In two starts, Bishop has allowed only two goals in 103:58 of ice time. Justin Abdelkader scored in the second period for the Red Wings. Mrazek finished with 29 saves. The Stars have totaled 119 shots in their first three games but managed only seven goals. Detroit's Mike Green had two assists, giving him six in three games.
