Red Wings March On To Western Semifinals

By Associated Press

The Detroit Red Wings, knocked out after one round in the Stanley Cup playoffs the past two years, advanced to the Western Conference semifinals with a 3-1 victory over the Dallas Stars Monday night in Detroit in Game 5 of their first-round series.

Darren McCarty, Dino Ciccarelli and Vyacheslav Kozlov scored for Detroit. Kevin Hatcher scored for Dallas.

Advancing to the second round was a big relief for Detroit. The Red Wings had lost in the first round of the NHL playoffs to San Jose in seven games last year and in seven to Toronto in 1993.

Detroit will face the lowest seed among the other first-round survivors in the conference semifinals beginning at home on Sunday.

Only the solid play of Andy Moog in goal kept Dallas in the game through the first two periods, when the Red Wings outshot the Stars 29-16.

At least four times in the first period, it came down to just Moog and a shooter. The goalie won all but one of those showdowns. The Red Wings had at least four more quality shots in outshooting Dallas 18-6 in the second period. Again, they scored just once.

It was Moog’s 116th playoff game in goal, moving him past Ken Dryden and Jacques Plante into fifth place on the NHL list. Moog, who was with the Edmonton Oilers when they won three Stanley Cup championships, has 61 playoff victories, sixth on the NHL list.
