DALLAS (AP) - Kari Lehtonen made 22 saves in his 33rd career shutout, Jamie Benn scored his NHL-leading 23rd goal and the Dallas Stars beat the St. Louis Blues 3-0 on Sunday night.

Benn and Patrick Sharp each had a power-play goal and an assist. Cody Eakin scored into an empty net with 1:32 remaining.

The victory avenged Dallas' 3-2 shootout loss to the Blues in St. Louis on Saturday night. The Stars have a league-best 57 points, and Dallas and Washington are the only teams that have not lost consecutive games this season.

Sharp pushed in his own rebound with 1:57 left in the first period. Just 40 second into the third, Benn took a pass in the slot from Sharp and beat Brian Elliott.

Lehtonen improved his season record to 12-2-0. He is 13-6-2 in his career against the Blues.

The Stars outshot St. Louis 38-22. Elliott made 35 saves.
