The Stars moved into a sixth-place tie with Chicago in the tight Western Conference playoff race.
Dallas ran up its largest goal total in two months and came within one of equaling the most it has scored in a game all season.
Corey Crawford was lifted after giving up three goals on 10 shots. Former Dallas goaltender Marty Turco came in and made 15 saves.
It was Chicago's fourth loss in five games.
