DALLAS (AP) -- Marty Turco's five-game winning streak ended, and that could give Ed Belfour the opening he needs to get back in the Dallas Stars' goaltender rotation.
Stacy Roest put the tiebreaking goal past Turco with 8:57 left to lift the Minnesota Wild to a 5-3 victory over the Stars on Friday night.
Turco had backstopped the Stars to four straight victories and had a 1.73 goals-against average and .930 save percentage during his five straight wins.
Against Minnesota, Turco had trouble controlling rebounds and allowed the highest goal total in a game since giving up four in a loss at Detroit on Jan. 12.
"Marty would probably like to have a couple of those back," Stars coach Rick Wilson said.
Wilson said he wouldn't decide who would start Sunday against New Jersey until after Saturday's practice.
"Whatever happens, I've got to keep myself ready to play," said Turco, 13-5-0 this season.
Turco was screened on Roest's goal and had trouble seeing the puck until it was past him.
"They had a couple of whacks at it and it came through a screen," said Turco. "For me, that was the most disappointing one because of the magnitude of it. We had some bad bounces go against us and it cost us."
With the game tied at 3, Roest scored his eighth goal on a rebound, and Pascal Dupuis added an empty-netter with 10.5 seconds remaining to end Dallas' four-game winning streak.
The Wild, who beat St. Louis 3-0 on Thursday night, were 2-11-2 in their previous 15 games before the current two-game winning streak.
"St. Louis had some of their good players out," said Wild goaltender Manny Fernandez, the former Stars backup who finished with 26 saves. "But it seemed like we came in here and surprised them."
Andrew Brunette gave the Wild a a 3-2 lead with 17:47 remaining, but the Stars' Jere Lehtinen scored on a rebound with 12:56 left to tie it.
Minnesota got second-period goals from Marian Gaborik, who scored on a 5-on-3 power play, and Darby Hendrickson.
Pierre Turgeon and Brenden Morrow also scored for the Stars, who had been 6-2-1 in their previous nine games to climb into the Western Conference playoff chase.
"This team (Dallas) was on a roll and we were lucky they didn't score on all their chances because they had plenty of them," said Minnesota coach Jacques Lemaire.
Turgeon opened the scoring in the first but Gaborik tied it at 16:09 of the second period.
Morrow notched his 12th goal at 19:01 of the second period, but Hendrickson evened the score again with 4.6 seconds left in the second period.
Notes: Turgeon has at least one point in eight straight games. ... Rob DiMaio was in the Stars' lineup for the first time since the Olympic break. DiMaio had been a healthy scratch in the first five games after the break. ... Gaborik has three goals in his last two games. ... Antii Laaksonen had three assists for Minnesota. ...Stars rookie defenseman John Erskine suffered a broken bone in his foot after blocking a shot in the second period, and Wilson said "he could be out for a while."
