Mike Modano was able to kept his emotions in check. Beating his former team was a tougher assignment.

The top line of Brad Richards, Loui Eriksson and James Neal had goals, Kari Lehtonen made 25 saves and Dallas beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-1 on Thursday night in Stars career scoring leader Modano’s first game in Texas as a visiting player.

“There was just a world of emotions and memories,” said Modano, who had two of his shots blocked and another that missed the net. “A lot of special things have gone on here. I was involved in the game from the ground floor, and helping to promote the game of hockey here in Texas. It was fun to play here.”
