Stars end Wild's 7-game win streak with 5-3 victory; Jagr reaches 1,000 assists

DALLAS - Jamie Benn, Ray Whitney and Cody Eakin each had a goal and an assist to help lead the Dallas Stars to a 5-3 victory to end the Minnesota Wild's seven-game winning streak on Friday.

Erik Cole and Tomas Vincour also scored for Dallas, which moved within one point of the Western Conference's final playoff spot. Jaromir Jagr also earned his 1,000th career NHL assist.

After a 7-4 loss to Minnesota at home on Monday, the Stars had three days off to regroup and rebounded with a strong effort, scoring twice on power plays in the third period.

Kari Lehtonen, who gave up six goals on 41 shots Monday, made 30 saves for the win.

Devin Setoguchi, Jared Spurgeon and Torrey Mitchell scored for Minnesota, which also had its five-game road winning streak end.

Quote of the Day

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
