DALLAS (Ticker) -- The Dallas Stars continued piling up points at home, but a former teammate had a say in how many they gained Friday.
Brett Hull scored with 46 seconds remaining in the third period against his former team as the Detroit Red Wings rallied for a 3-3 tie with the Stars.
The Stars, who are the only NHL team without a regulation loss at home, have earned 23 of a possible 25 points at American Airlines Center (11-0-2-1). Since a 3-2 overtime loss to the Florida Panthers on October 30, Dallas is 7-0-2 on home ice.
"They've made a lot better decisions this year than they have in the past," said Hull of Dallas, which missed the playoffs by four points last season without him. "With Mike (Modano) leading the way and a solid corp of defensemen, they could go a long way."
One game after having a 10-game points streak snapped, Hull - who was a Star from 1998-2001 before signing with Detroit as a free agent - converted Brendan Shanahan's cross-ice pass for his 11th goal of the season.
"Hull's been playing great and doing everything he can to help the team," Detroit goaltender Curtis Joseph said. "It was a great shot, really a result of sheer talent."
Hull also downplayed the importance of scoring a tying goal against his former team.
"I like to score and I like to win," he said.
After Joseph was pulled, Shanahan patiently waited for Hull to get open and once he did, Hull took the pass and whipped a one-timer past Stars goaltender Marty Turco, who tried to make a sliding save.
Hull, who scored the controversial game-winning goal for Dallas in Game Six of the 1999 Stanley Cup Finals, has eight goals and five assists in his last 12 games.
Hull's 690th career goal came just under nine minutes after Pierre Turgeon gave the Stars a 3-2 lead.
Guerin took a shot, but Joseph couldn't grab the puck and Guerin was able to find Turgeon.
Maltby was credited with the goal after Dallas defenseman Stephane Robidas tried to clear the puck and the shot went off Turco's pads.
The lead was short-lived as DiMaio broke free and after Joseph got tangled up with defenseman Chris Chelios in the crease, where he scored his sixth goal.
The second of four meetings between the Western Conference powerhouses was similiar to to first one, which was also a 3-3 tie. In the first meeting, Detroit scored the equalizer late in the third period and a lot of the game was spent on special teams.
Fedorov, who is off to his best start since 1995-96, when he scored 39 goals, opened the scoring just 50 seconds into the second period.
With Luc Robitaille unchecked in the right corner, he whipped a cross-crease pass to Fedorov, who one-timed it over Turco.
At 6:08 of the second, Sydor hooked Mathieu Dandenault, who was streaking through the slot on a breakway. With a chance to score the NHL's fifth goal on a penalty shot and second in as many nights, Dandenault was denied by Turco, who came out of the crease to make a chest save.
Guerin, who had a goal and an assist, forged a 1-1 tie when he converted Mike Modano's pass just 48 seconds into the third for his 13th goal. Guerin has points in 10 of his last 12 games (8-5-13) and the Stars are 15-1-3 when he records a point.
"It's good in the sense that we learned a lot about ourselves," Stars coach Dave Tippett said. "They were composed and looked like a championship team. The biggest difference in the first two periods was composure. They were composed and we were anxious. We were a bit jittery early on. We finally got around to doing some things and simplifying things."
"They've played two really solid games against us," Guerin added. "It's the small things in big games that is the difference between good and great teams."
