By JONAH BRONSTEIN
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Ben Bishop made 35 saves for his third straight shutout, and the Dallas Stars beat the Buffalo Sabres 2-0 on Tuesday night.
Bishop extended his career-best shutout streak to 204 minutes, 20 seconds. It's the second-longest run for a Stars goaltender behind Ed Belfour's streak of 219 minutes, 26 seconds that ran from Nov. 17-24, 2000. He is the third goaltender in franchise history with three consecutive shutouts.
Rookie Roope Hintz scored twice for Dallas in the opener of a two-game trip. The Stars have won five of six and remain on top of the Western Conference wild-card standings with 77 points.
Buffalo played without captain Jack Eichel, who began serving a two-game suspension for an illegal check to the head of Colorado's Carl Soderberg.
