fourth game this season with two power-play goals

DALLAS -- Everything went right for the Dallas Stars against the listless Minnesota Wild. DJ LeMahieu Jersey . Erik Cole and Ray Whitney scored power-play goals, and the Stars stopped a three-game losing streak with a 4-0 victory over the Wild on Tuesday night. Kari Lehtonen made 18 saves as Dallas (22-20-8) won for the second time in its last 11 games. It was his second shutout of the season and No. 24 for his career. Jordie Benn scored on a penalty shot, beating Darcy Kuemper at 11:22 of the third period. "I thought we played a great team game tonight," said Dallas captain Jamie Benn, Jordie Benns younger brother. Dallas was coming off a 4-1 loss at Nashville on Monday night, while the Wild played for the first time since a 3-2 overtime victory over the Stars on Saturday. Minnesota (27-20-5) dropped to 7-3 in 2014. Most of the first period was played in the Minnesota end. Dallas finished with 12 shots on goal to only three for the Wild. The Stars also had all three power plays in the first. "This game goes in the garbage," Wild coach Mike Yeo said. "We didnt execute. We didnt defend. We were passengers. We were spectators through the whole game." "We won the opening faceoff and we spent 40 seconds in our own zone," Yeo said. "Thats a bad sign right there that we werent ready to execute. It just trickled on from there." Dallas scored at 13:18 of the first when Vernon Fiddler sent a wobbly drive from the top of the left faceoff circle over Kuemper for his first goal in 28 games. The Stars then added to their lead by scoring a power-play goal for the fifth consecutive game. Cole put the puck in the upper right corner from the left circle at 16:45, with Alex Goligoski earning his second assist of the game. "Its a tough game when youre chasing," Wild centre Kyle Brodziak said. "Being down 2-0 early on like we were, you feel like the rest of the game youre chasing the game. Its a tough league to be doing that. Good teams know how to shut you down. We couldnt get anything going." The final goal was on a third-period penalty shot by Benn. Not Jamie Benn, the teams second-leading scorer, but Jordie. The defenceman entered the game with two career goals. Jordie Benn skated in on Kuemper, got him to move to his left and slipped a backhand shot past him. Benn said he had taken a penalty shot once before in the minors. "I did that exact move, and it worked," he said. "Thats the only move I have, the only one Ive ever tried, and it worked again." Jamie Benn joked: "I pretty much taught him everything he knows." Stars coach Lindy Ruff had a different perspective. "I think thats a move Jordie should teach Jamie. Im serious," he said. "That was a solid pump fake." Whitney got on the board at 13:18 of the second period, lifting the Stars to a 3-0 lead just two seconds before a high-sticking penalty on Minnesotas Justin Fontaine ran out. Sergei Gonchar skated toward the net, and then passed to Whitney. He pulled the puck away from Kuemper, and then pushed it behind him. The shot crossed the goal line before a Wild defenceman could knock the puck away. It marked the Stars fourth game this season with two power-play goals. "The third goal was huge," Lehtonen said. "It settled things even more, and made it less stressful for me." Dallas outshot Minnesota 16-6 in the second period, and 36-18 for the game. NOTES: Cole scored two goals in this seasons first 25 games, but has 12 since the slow start - including three in his last five games. ... Dallas had 20 power-play goals in its first 45 games. The Stars have six in the last five games, and have improved from 29th to 27th in the NHL with a man advantage. ... Whitneys power-play goal was Dallas 10th at home this season, inching the Stars toward an 11-per cent success. They still rank last in the league on home power plays. ... Minnesota was 0 for 2 with a man advantage, extending its current drought to 0 for 14. ... Dallas is 4 of 7 on penalty shots this season. Jake McGee Rockies Jersey . The Jets will try to overcome the loss of Evander Kane and a 7-12-4 road record when they visit the Carolina Hurricanes tonight at RBC Center. The game is available on TSN Jets in the Jets viewing region at 6:30pm et/5:30pm ct. Jake McGee Jersey . QUARTERBACKS Nick Foles (vs. Dallas)Last week: 22/31, 296 yards, 3 TDs; 1 rushing TDFoles is owned by less than 20% of teams heading into Week 7 meaning a lot of fantasy teams – and surely some in need of QB help – missed out on a Top 3 performance at the position last week.It appears the ownership of the Pittsburgh Penguins feels head coach Dan Bylsma is one member of the organization that should take the fall for this years early playoff exit at the hands of the New York Rangers. According to Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, sources say ownership believes Bylsma lost the team, especially franchise players Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, and have favoured his dismissal. Penguins ownership continues to hold meetings that are expected to determine the fate of Bylsma as well as general manager Ray Shero. "I think its a foregone conclusion (that Bylsma will be gone)," TSN Hockeys Bob McKenzie said on TSN Radio 1050. "In the past, Bylsma was seen a as a beloved figure by the Penguins players but I think anything but that is the case right now." The Tribune-Review report indicates that ownership feels Sheros signing of Bylsma to a two-year extension after last years playoff loss to the Boston Bruins in four straight games ties him to hhis head coach. Jose Reyes Jersey. Sources told the Tribune-Review that if Bylsma needed to be replaced, Shero may suffer the same fate. Bylsma and Shero both have two years remaining on their current deals. "I do believe the reports in Pittsburgh that there is some thought of going deeper than just Bylsma, but I dont know if thats being signed off in terms of general manager Ray Sheros future," McKenzie said. "Is it possible Shero could lose his job? I think its possible. Is it possible that he could end up staying on? I think thats somewhat possible too." Sources told the Tribune-Review the players werent happy with the length of practices, the number of meetings and a general lack of fun atmosphere around the team this season. Specifically, Crosby and Malkin were not happy with the perceived criticism they received from Bylsma during team meetings. The Penguins will hold their final media availability of the season at CONSOL Energy Center on Thursday.
