DALLAS (AP) - Eric Lindros scored two goals, Mike Modano added a goal and an assist and the Dallas Stars beat the St. Louis Blues 4-1 Wednesday night to get off to the best start in franchise history.

Marty Turco stopped 23 shots and Jussi Jokinen had a goal and an assist for Dallas (10-2). The Stars' best previous 12-game mark was 9-2-1 in 1996-97 and 1982-83.

With the game tied at 1, Modano scored at 7:13 of the second period, skating hard to the net and converting Jokinen's centring pass for his eighth goal of the season and 493rd of his career.

Jokinen made it 3-1 at 12:55 of the third period, striking from just below the right circle off a feed from Modano. Lindros registered his second goal of the night and third of the season at 15:00 of the final period to give Dallas a three-goal edge.

Turco denied Dallas Drake on a breakaway midway through the second period to preserve the 2-1 advantage.

Keith Tkachuk scored and Curtis Sanford stopped 27 shots for the Blues (3-5-3).

Dallas improved to 9-2-2 in its last 13 meetings with St. Louis.
