2001 Playoffs

Dallas vs. Edmonton

Dan Cleary, Rem Murray and Anson Carter scored power-play goals as the Edmonton Oilers beat the Dallas Stars 4-3 to even the Western Conference quarterfinal series.

"This was the game we really, really wanted to focus on to give us home-ice advantage," Edmonton coach Craig MacTavish said. "We've played very well at Skyreach Center all year long and we know what an advantage our fans will give us."

The Oilers ended a 13-game losing streak in Dallas and captured the home-ice advantage in the series.

"We have to forget about this game, regroup and get ready for what we have to do tomorrow," Stars center Mike Modano said. "We have to play a little smarter. There were times when our emotions got the best of us. We still need the intensity, but we have to keep our composure."

Game Three is Sunday night at Edmonton.
