DALLAS — Mike Ribeiro had three assists in regulation, then scored in the second round of the shootout to lift the Dallas Stars into sole possession of first place in the Pacific Division with a 4-3 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday night.

The teams entered the game tied atop the Pacific with 83 points.
