DALLAS, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Jamie Benn scored twice Saturday, including the go-ahead score in the third period, sparking the Dallas Stars to a 4-1 win over Edmonton.

He also notched the equalizer late in the second period, one-timing a Trevor Daly pass from behind the net to produce a 1-1 tie.

Mike Ribeiro added an insurance goal and an empty-netter in the third period and Loui Eriksson contributed three assists as Dallas won back-to-back games for the first time since mid-December.

Richard Bachman turned aside 25-of-26 shots to collect the win.

Taylor Hall got the only goal for the Oilers, who fell to 0-10-1 in their last 11 visits to Dallas.

Nikolai Khabibulin made 30 saves for Edmonton.
