ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Jamie Benn’s goal early in the third period and Kari Lehtonen’s second consecutive shutout gave the Dallas Stars their sixth straight victory, 1-0 over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night.

Benn scored for the third time in four games to give him 21 this season. He snagged a rink-wide pass from Brendan Morrow that glanced off Wild left wing Stephane Veilleux’s stick and straight to Benn for the tip-in with 16:14 remaining.

The Stars haven’t needed that long to score lately. The Western Conference’s hottest team is 10-0-1 in its last 11 games, with seven victories in regulation. The Stars have taken over the Pacific Division race, and have a four-point lead with 12 games to play.

Lehtonen made 25 saves. He hasn’t lost a road start in regulation since Feb. 14 at Detroit.
