Tom Wandell scored twice, while Loui Eriksson and Eric Nystrom also tallied goals for the Stars, who earned their third straight victory to become the 10th franchise in NHL history to reach 1,500 wins, 758 of which took place when the club was known as the Minnesota North Stars.
Devin Setoguchi netted the lone goal for the Wild, who had their brief two- game win streak snapped with their 16th straight loss to the Stars in Dallas. The Wild have not defeated the Stars on the road since March 21, 2003.
Niklas Backstrom started the game in net for Minnesota, but was pulled in the second period after allowing three goals on 14 shots. Matt Hackett entered in relief and stopped all 10 shots he faced.
