DALLAS (AP) The kid is all right for the Dallas Stars.

Radek Faksa, the rookie center who split his season between the AHL and the NHL, scored the winning goal off a rebound with 4:44 to play and had an assist on the Stars' other goal in a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Friday night in Game 1 of the Western Conference second-round series.

"He brings enthusiasm, a big smile on his face, the willingness to do whatever it takes to win right now," coach Lindy Ruff said about the 22-year-old Faksa. "He's having a great time. He's a kid that. He's enjoying every minute he plays, and you can see it in his game. His play has been infectious for our team."
