ST. LOUIS - Jamie Benn scored twice, including a breakaway goal 12:06 into the third period, and the Dallas Stars earned a 4-2 exhibition victory over the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night.

Tom Wandell had a goal and an assist and Brad Richards also scored for the Stars, who got 24 saves from Marty Turco in winning for the second time in three pre-season games.

David Backes scored a short-handed goal for the Blues, who also got a goal from Keith Tkachuk.

The Blues fell for the first time this pre-season after scoring nine times in two previous victories. Chris Mason stopped 25 shots.

Benn sealed the win for the Stars when he stole a puck from former Star Darryl Sydor and beat Mason to give Dallas a 3-1 lead before Tkachuk scored with 6:19 to play.

Sydor, a 17-year veteran, spent parts of 10 seasons with the Stars. He is in camp with the Blues.
