(Newser) – The Dallas Stars own the Edmonton Oilers, and they proved it again last night as Jere Lehtinen scored twice to lead a 5-2 win, reports the AP. Dallas is now 10-2 against Edmonton over the past three years and 22-4-2 at home against the Oilers since moving to Dallas in 1993.

The Stars' Marty Turco had 20 saves and had a shutout going until Dustin Penner's power-play goal with 12:01 remaining. Turco, who is now 15-4 against the Oilers, helped the Stars win for the 10th time in 12 games overall. Mike Modano scored an empty-net goal with 1:59 left for his 17th of the season and 524th overall.
