Dubnyk makes 34 saves, Wild hold off Stars 2-1

Devan Dubnyk made 34 saves, Thomas Vanek scored and the Minnesota Wild beat the Dallas Stars 2-1 on Saturday night.

Vanek and Ryan Carter had goals in the second period for the Wild. Dallas didn't score until Jamie Benn got his 25th goal with 3:13 left in the third.

Dubnyk stopped another shot by Benn with 1:00 left, after the Stars pulled goalie Antti Niemi for an extra skater.

Minnesota beat Dallas for the first time in four games this season. The Wild had lost the two most recent meetings despite taking leads of 3-0 and 2-0.

Dallas had an apparent goal disallowed in the first period. Video review indicated that Antoine Roussel had interfered with Dubnyk.

The Western Conference-leading Stars have lost four of their past five games. Niemi made 23 saves.
