Raycroft, Neal, Morrow lead Stars past Sabres 4-0

Andrew Raycroft made 34 saves for his eighth career shutout in his first start of the season, James Neal and Brenden Morrow scored power-play goals, and the Dallas Stars snapped a three-game losing streak with a 4-0 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night.

Raycroft was signed as a free agent in the offseason to back up Kari Lehtonen, who got the first nine starts.

Stars coach Marc Crawford decided it was time to go with Raycroft, and the 10-year veteran was busy in the second period as the Sabres sent 14 shots on net.

Steve Ott notched a short-handed goal and Trevor Daley scored at even strength, both in the third period.
