Stars Silence Oilers

Jamie Benn scored his fifth goal in six games, helping the Dallas Stars beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-1 in NHL action on Monday night.

Edmonton Captain Connor McDavid missed the game due to illness.

Jason Dickinson, Brett Ritchie and Esa Lindell also scored in the Stars' third straight win.

Mattias Janmark had two assists and Anton Khudobin stopped 28 shots.

Jujhar Khaira spoiled Khudobin's shutout bid with 5:24 left in the third and Mikko Koskinen finished with 21 saves as the Oilers snapped a three-game win streak.

Edmonton's streak started with a 1-0 overtime win at home over Dallas last Tuesday.

Benn scored his team-leading 12th goal on the power play at 7:24 of the third period, tipping a pass from Gavin Bayreuther past Koskinen to push the lead to 3-0.
