NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Mike Ribeiro scored two goals in the first period and the Dallas Stars beat Nashville 4-1 on Thursday night, ruining the return of Predators captain Shea Weber from a concussion.

Weber had missed four games since being hurt Dec. 23 in a loss at Dallas in a collision with Stars defenseman Mark Fistric. The Predators announced Thursday at the morning skate that the defenseman had been cleared to play, and Nashville had a franchise-record seventh straight sellout for Weber’s return.

But Ribeiro scored twice with Loui Eriksson assisting on both. Jamie Benn added a goal and an assist and Adam Burish had a goal as the Stars won for the second time in two meetings with the Predators this season.

Gabriel Bourque scored his first NHL goal for Nashville, which had a three-game winning streak snapped.
