Post-Game Notes - Mar. 13
G Kari Lehtonen made 25 saves for his fourth shutout of the season and LW Jamie Benn scored the game’s lone goal 3:46 into the third period, leading the Dallas Stars over the Minnesota Wild 1-0 at Xcel Energy Center. Pacific-leading Dallas has won six in a row and is 10-0-1 in its last 11.

G Matt Hackett made 24 saves for Minnesota, which plays host to Carolina on Saturday for a special 1:00 p.m. St. Patrick’s Day matinee, part of a doubleheader with the WCHA Final Five Championship game at 7:00 p.m.

G Matt Hackett made 24 saves, falling to 3-4-0 this season but with a 2.06 GAA and a .934 SV%.

The Wild has played three straight one-goal games, going 1-1-1. Minnesota is 18-8-10 this season in one-goal games. Dallas is 19-7-5 in one-goal contests.

The Wild was trying to sweep a home season series versus the Stars for the second time in team history – the first since 2002-03. Minnesota also would have won three in a row at home against Dallas for the first time in team history.

Minnesota allowed the game’s first goal for the 10th time in 11 games.

The Wild didn’t yield a first-period goal for the second time in 10 games.
