This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Dallas • Jamie Benn, Ray Whitney and Cody Eakin each had a goal and an assist to help lead the Dallas Stars to a 5-3 victory to end the Minnesota Wild's seven-game winning streak on Friday.

Erik Cole and Tomas Vincour also scored for Dallas, which moved within one point of the Western Conference's final playoff spot. Jaromir Jagr also earned his 1,000th career NHL assist.

After a 7-4 loss to Minnesota at home on Monday, the Stars had three days off to regroup and rebounded with a strong effort, scoring twice on power plays in the third period.

Kari Lehtonen, who gave up six goals on 41 shots Monday, made 30 saves for the win.

Devin Setoguchi, Jared Spurgeon and Torrey Mitchell scored for Minnesota, which also had its five-game road winning streak end.

Lightning 5, Devils 4 (SO) • At Tampa, Fla., Alex Killorn scored with 15.1 seconds left in the third period and Tampa Bay won in a shootout over New Jersey to give new Lightning coach Jon Cooper a victory in his NHL debut.

The Lightning pulled even at 4 when Killorn scored from the right circle. Teddy Purcell and Victor Hedman scored for Tampa Bay in the shootout.

Cooper was hired as the eighth coach in Lightning history Monday, one day after the team announced the firing of Guy Boucher. Cooper had been coaching Syracuse of the AHL, Tampa Bay's top minor league team.

Steven Stamkos scored his 24th and 25th goals this season and added an assist for the Lightning. Nate Thompson had the other Tampa Bay goal.

The Devils got goals from Andrei Loktionov, Tom Kostopoulos, Andy Greene and Ryan Carter. EASTERN CONFERENCE
