Kari Lehtonen stopped 22 shots for his 23rd career shutout as the Dallas Stars beat the struggling Edmonton Oilers 3-0 on Wednesday night.

Rich Peverley, Antoine Roussel and Tyler Seguin scored for the Stars, who have won four of their last five games.

The Oilers have lost four straight and are 1-8-1 in their last 1o games. Edmonton was also blanked at home for the third consecutive game, setting a new franchise record, and has totaled just two goals in the last five on home ice.

Peverley got the Stars on the scoreboard with 9:15 left in the second period when he knocked in a rebound of his own shot for his fourth goal of the season.

Seguin and Roussel had empty-netters 38 seconds apart in the final minute to seal Dallas' win.
