  ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Francis Wathier and Vernon Fiddler each had a goal and an assist, leading the Dallas Stars to a 4-0 win over the St. Louis Blues on Saturday.
   Andrew Raycroft stopped 33 shots for the shutout.
   Jake Dowell and Tomas Vincour also scored, and Trevor Daley added a pair of assists for the Stars, who ended their preseason winning six of seven games.
