DALLAS -- Everything went right for the Dallas Stars against the listless Minnesota Wild. Erik Cole and Ray Whitney scored power-play goals, and the Stars stopped a three-game losing streak with a 4-0 victory over the Wild on Tuesday night. Kari Lehtonen made 18 saves as Dallas (22-20-8) won for the second time in its last 11 games. It was his second shutout of the season and No. 24 for his career. Jordie Benn scored on a penalty shot, beating Darcy Kuemper at 11:22 of the third period. "I thought we played a great team game tonight," said Dallas captain Jamie Benn, Jordie Benns younger brother. Dallas was coming off a 4-1 loss at Nashville on Monday night, while the Wild played for the first time since a 3-2 overtime victory over the Stars on Saturday. Minnesota (27-20-5) dropped to 7-3 in 2014. Most of the first period was played in the Minnesota end. Dallas finished with 12 shots on goal to only three for the Wild. The Stars also had all three power plays in the first. "This game goes in the garbage," Wild coach Mike Yeo said. "We didnt execute. We didnt defend. We were passengers. We were spectators through the whole game." "We won the opening faceoff and we spent 40 seconds in our own zone," Yeo said. "Thats a bad sign right there that we werent ready to execute. It just trickled on from there." Dallas scored at 13:18 of the first when Vernon Fiddler sent a wobbly drive from the top of the left faceoff circle over Kuemper for his first goal in 28 games. The Stars then added to their lead by scoring a power-play goal for the fifth consecutive game. Cole put the puck in the upper right corner from the left circle at 16:45, with Alex Goligoski earning his second assist of the game. "Its a tough game when youre chasing," Wild centre Kyle Brodziak said. "Being down 2-0 early on like we were, you feel like the rest of the game youre chasing the game. Its a tough league to be doing that. Good teams know how to shut you down. We couldnt get anything going." The final goal was on a third-period penalty shot by Benn. Not Jamie Benn, the teams second-leading scorer, but Jordie. The defenceman entered the game with two career goals. Jordie Benn skated in on Kuemper, got him to move to his left and slipped a backhand shot past him. Benn said he had taken a penalty shot once before in the minors. "I did that exact move, and it worked," he said. "Thats the only move I have, the only one Ive ever tried, and it worked again." Jamie Benn joked: "I pretty much taught him everything he knows." Stars coach Lindy Ruff had a different perspective. "I think thats a move Jordie should teach Jamie. Im serious," he said. "That was a solid pump fake." Whitney got on the board at 13:18 of the second period, lifting the Stars to a 3-0 lead just two seconds before a high-sticking penalty on Minnesotas Justin Fontaine ran out. Sergei Gonchar skated toward the net, and then passed to Whitney. He pulled the puck away from Kuemper, and then pushed it behind him. The shot crossed the goal line before a Wild defenceman could knock the puck away. It marked the Stars fourth game this season with two power-play goals. "The third goal was huge," Lehtonen said. "It settled things even more, and made it less stressful for me." Dallas outshot Minnesota 16-6 in the second period, and 36-18 for the game. NOTES: Cole scored two goals in this seasons first 25 games, but has 12 since the slow start - including three in his last five games. ... Dallas had 20 power-play goals in its first 45 games. The Stars have six in the last five games, and have improved from 29th to 27th in the NHL with a man advantage. ... Whitneys power-play goal was Dallas 10th at home this season, inching the Stars toward an 11-per cent success. They still rank last in the league on home power plays. ... Minnesota was 0 for 2 with a man advantage, extending its current drought to 0 for 14. ... Dallas is 4 of 7 on penalty shots this season. Wayne Gretzky Oilers Jersey .TV Series: Duck Dynasty.

IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys decided one year with Monte Kiffin as defensive co-ordinator and Bill Callahan as play-caller was enough. Kiffin was demoted Tuesday in favour of defensive line coach Rod Marinelli, and Scott Linehan was hired as the passing game co-ordinator who will call plays. The staff shuffling -- the second in as many years -- comes after the Cowboys gave up the most yards in franchise history and finished last in the NFL in total defence and had their worst offensive output in yardage since 2005. "If you look at staffs around this league and rosters all around this league, theres change from year to year," Garrett told The Associated Press. "And the teams that embrace the change are the ones that have the most success and again we feel like from a system standpoint, the systems on offence and the systems on defence, remain in place." Kiffin and Marinelli came to Dallas together last year after the Cowboys fired defensive co-ordinator Rob Ryan and decided to switch to a four-man front with three linebackers following nearly a decade in the 3-4 defence. Quarterback Tony Romo will have his third play-caller in as many seasons after Garrett had that role in 2012. There was even a change in the middle of this past season when Garrett reinserted himself by relaying the calls from Callahan to Romo. "Its not really a concern at all," Garrett said. "Weve had the same offensive system in place here for seven years. We feel like the transition will be really relatively smooth for everybody." Garrett is entering the final season of his contract and is coming off three consecutive 8-8 seasons that extended the clubs playoff drought to four straight years. Garrett said Callahan will remain on staff in 2014, also the final year of his contract. He will keep his titles of offensive co-ordinator and offensive line coach. "Just like you would with a player, guys are always in roles that tend to evolve and change," Garrett said. "If you have the right kiind of guys on your team, they embrace those roles, understand the objective is to try to help our team first and foremost.ddddddddddddBill knows that." Linehan, the former St. Louis coach who was Detroits offensive co-ordinator the past five seasons, gave Garrett his first coaching job in the NFL in 2005 when he was offensive co-ordinator in Miami. Garrett was his quarterbacks coach that season. "He and I have a real comfort level with each other," Garrett said. "Philosophically, were on the same page. He has a comfort level with our system of football. The other thing hell bring is some new blood and some freshness to it." The Lions finished sixth or higher each of the past three years in total offence, while the Cowboys slipped to 16th, their lowest since 2002. While improving dramatically in takeaways on defence under Kiffin, the Cowboys gave up the first two 600-yard games in franchise history and surrendered 40 first downs for the first time in league history. Their 6,645 yards allowed were almost 1,000 more than the previous club record from 2012. Garrett said Kiffin, who will turn 74 next month, will serve more as a mentor who will "help coach coaches and coach players" after spearheading the transition to the 4-3 defence. Marinelli was Chicagos defensive co-ordinator for three years under Lovie Smith before Smith was fired in 2012, when the Bears led the league in interceptions (24) and takeaways (44) and were third in points allowed. "The success he had in Chicago as a co-ordinator speaks for itself," Garrett said. "To have him as a point person is exciting and to have Kiff in the overseeing role is again something we think is good for our team." The Cowboys now have three former head coaches on the staff in Callahan, Marinelli and Linehan, who was 11-25 in two-plus seasons as coach of the Rams. He was fired after an 0-4 start in 2008 and joined the Lions a year later when Jim Schwartz was hired as head coach. Schwartz was fired last month. ' ' '
