Mike Modano of the Dallas Stars became the 39th player in NHL history and the second born in the United States to reach 500 goals Tuesday night.
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.
