NEWARK, N.J. - Jason Spezza and Jamie Benn scored in a shootout, and Dallas beat New Jersey 3-2 on Friday night, extending the Devils' NHL record for shootout losses to 18 straight.

Kari Lehtonen finished with 25 saves for the Stars. It didn't appear as if he had to stop any in the shootout, with Mike Cammalleri's shot going over the net on the first attempt and Jaromir Jagr losing control of the puck on the second.

Spezza scored after Mike Cammalleri missed with a dancing backhander in front. Benn beat Cory Schneider skating across the crease from right to left.

Benn scored for the fifth straight game for Dallas and Patrick Eaves got the other goal in regulation.

Eric Gelinas and Damien Brunner scored for New Jersey, which has lost four (0-2-2) in a row. Schneider made 35 saves, including a breakaway stop on Erik Cole late in the third period.
