Jamie Benn scored twice, including the tiebreaker in the third period, rookie Richard Bachman made 25 saves and the Dallas Stars extended their home dominance over the Edmonton Oilers with a 4-1 victory on Saturday.

The loss may have been even more painful to the Oilers, who lost young star Jordan Eberle in the first period with a right knee injury.

With the teams even at 1, Benn went hard to the net, collected the rebound of Adam Burish's shot, and lifted the puck over sprawling Edmonton goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin at 7:03 of the final period. It was Benn's 13th of the season.

Mike Ribeiro also had two goals, giving him four in two games, and Loui Eriksson contributed three assists for Dallas.

The Stars haven't lost at home to the Oilers in regulation since Dec. 8, 2006, going 10-0-1 during that span.
