ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Patrick Eaves scored two goals and Jordie Benn added his first goal in three months, leading the Dallas Stars to a 4-0 victory over the playoff-bound Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday night.

Jhonas Enroth made 19 saves in his fifth career shutout for the Stars, and Vernon Fiddler opened the scoring in three-goal second period of the Stars' eighth victory in their past nine road games.

Jamie Benn had three assists to pull even with Sidney Crosby and John Tavares atop the NHL scoring race for the Stars, who will miss the postseason despite winning 13 of their past 18 games.

Frederik Andersen stopped 28 shots for the Pacific Division champion Ducks, who wasted their first chance to lock up home-ice advantage throughout the Western Conference playoffs with a victory.
