It took just 83 seconds for the Stars to get on the board. Jason Spezza scored his sixteenth goal of the year from Johnny Oduya. Jamie Benn would strike for the Stars in the second period to give them a 2-0 lead. The Oilers would split that lead in half with a late power play goal from Teddy Purcell, but the Stars would make it 3-1 a mere fifteen seconds later with a goal from Jyrki Jokipakka. Nail Yakupov would score his fourth of the year late in the third period, but it would be too little, too late as the Stars toppled the Oilers to get off the schneid.
The Oilers enter the All-Star break hosting Nashville.
