Stars Hand Wild Another Loss 4-3
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — John Klingberg scored in overtime and Kari Lehtonen made 37 saves to win for the first time in more than a month and give the Dallas Stars a 4-3 victory Tuesday over Minnesota, the 11th loss in the last 12 games for the fading Wild.
Jamie Benn, who had two assists, set up Klingberg's high shot from the slot that eluded goalie Darcy Kuemper with 2:21 remaining in the extra period. Jason Demers scored, Patrick Eaves pitched in a goal and an assist and Tyler Seguin notched two assists for the Stars, who recovered well from a 5-1 loss Saturday at Chicago.
Kuemper stopped 26 shots for the Wild, who fell to a woeful 1-10 in the 3-on-3 overtime format this season. They're 1-10-1 since a 2-1 win Jan. 9 at Dallas.
Mikko Koivu, Justin Fontaine and Erik Haula scored for the Wild.
