Stars score early to defeat Predators

Stu Barnes and Mike Modano each had a goal and an assist, and the Dallas Stars got revenge where it counted Saturday night by beating the Nashville Predators 4-2. This marked the first time these teams had met since March 17 when Predators forward Jordin Tootoo decked Stephane Robidas, knocking him out with an unexpected gloved punch. That drew a five-game suspension for Tootoo, a ban that ended Saturday, and Robidas has missed seven games since.
