Dallas Star Mike Modano reaches career milestone, gets 500th goal

He scored with 10:24 left in the third period against the Philadelphia Flyers.

The 36-year-old native of Livonia, Mich., beat Flyers goaltender Antero Niittymaki with a quick shot from in front of the net for his 15th goal of the season. That pulled Modano within two of Joe Mullen for the career lead among U.S.-born players.
