EDMONTON (CP) - Trevor Daley's second period goal proved to be the game-winner as the Dallas Stars edged the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 Friday night.

Ales Hemsky appeared to score the tying goal with four seconds left, but the goal was disallowed due to a called gloved pass off the faceoff, prompting fans in Edmonton to litter the ice with debris.

Captain Brendan Morrow and Niklas Hagman also scored for the Stars, who improved to an impressive 11-2-0 to start the season while the Oilers have now slipped to 7-6-0.

Ryan Smyth and Petr Sykora scored for the Oilers.

Dallas opened the scoring with a controversial goal when Brendan Morrow beat Oilers goaltender Dwayne Roloson with a wrist shot during a scramble in front of the Edmonton net. Roloson contested that he had been interfered with on the play by Eric Lindros, but the goal was allowed.

There was no dispute on the Stars' second goal of the game. With just under two minutes to play in the first period, Dallas broke out on a two-on-one and Stu Barnes was able to thread the puck under sprawling Oilers defenceman Jason Smith to Niklas Hagman, who had a wide open net to shoot at. The Stars outshot Edmonton 14-5 in the first.

Edmonton came out firing to start the second and got a big break four minutes in when Ryan Smyth's shot from behind the net hit the leg of Dallas goaltender Marty Turco leg and went in, making the score 2-1.
