Cole, Whitney score power-play goals as Dallas Stars beat Minnesota Wild 4-0

DALLAS - Erik Cole and Ray Whitney scored power-play goals, and the Dallas Stars stopped a three-game losing streak with a 4-0 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night.

Kari Lehtonen made 18 saves as Dallas 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.

Minnesota (27-20-5) dropped to 7-3 in 2014.

Cole's goal at 16:45 of the first gave Dallas a 2-0 lead. It extended the Stars' season-high streak to five consecutive games with at least one power-play goal.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
