DALLAS -- Everything went right for the Dallas Stars against the listless Minnesota Wild. Jordan 13 Cheap Canada . 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.

"The trend is for teams to play positively and do everything to win a game rather than merely not lose," FIFAs panel of coaching experts working in Brazil reported Friday. The best teams were rewarded for being "not afraid of losing their shape for brief moments," the 284-page document noted. "Outstanding fast transitions and counterattacking tactics," were praised as the most effective strategy at a World Cup which equaled the tournament record for most goals and was widely praised as the best in a generation. It was a different story four years ago. Then, the football was so poor in South Africa that FIFA President Sepp Blatter asked a task force to suggest ways of making football more entertaining. Though that panel achieved little, in Brazil the teams, coaches and players rose to their challenge. "The tempo of the game was impressive -- Brazil 2014 was one of, if not the fastest World Cups ever played," the FIFA technical report said. Other successful trends in Brazil included playing with at least two strikers, three central defenders and only one defensive midfielder. Controversial incidents -- including Uruguay forward Luis Suarez biting an opponent, and players continuing despite apparent head injuries -- are not mentioned in the document. Teams are also rarely criticized, though Brazil is not spared after being outplayed by eventual winner Germany and the Netherlands. "An incomprehensibly poor performance against Germany," the report said of the host nations semifinal humbling, adding that 7-1 was "a fair reflection of the strengths of the two teams." FIFAs coaches noted Brazils "attacking game not quite clicking into gear and some co-ordination problems obvious in defence." Tactically, the FIFA report says top teams no longer use two holding midfielders, which was effective in South Africa. A lone striker is also out of fashion. "Most teams played with two strikers (if not three), and the few teams that played with one lone attacker left the competition early," the report said. Goalkeepers like Germanys Manuel Neuer now functionn as an extra outfield player, and specialized coaching should reflect that, the report said. Jordan 13 For Sale Canada. The report suggests playing with three central defenders is "on the rise again" thanks to the third-place Netherlands, surprise quarterfinalist Costa Rica, Chile, Mexico and Uruguay. Four years after Spain rode its tiki-taka passing to win the World Cup, the report notes effective use of the ball is now more important than simply having it. In Brazil, 21 of 64 matches were won by the counterattacking team having less possession. "Possession play must be efficient and not sterile," the report noted, adding that 34 of 171 goals in Brazil came from "quick transition play." "Counter-attacking tactics were once a tool in a teams armoury, but now some teams base their entire play around such tactics," the report said. More goals than expected came from corner kicks and "remarkable" high-quality crosses, and early leads were often overturned. "Teams that scored the first goal were at times too confident and too sure of themselves," the report said. Defensive tactics included aggressive pressing to get the ball in the first 15 minutes, and holding a back line at least 40 metres from goal. "Teams defended in a compact block in a high line and overloaded the area where the ball was," the report said. Costa Rica and Algeria are praised for making progress, and so was the CONCACAF region which also had Mexico and the United States reach the second round "Good development work has seen the gap between (CONCACAF) teams narrow, which automatically means that there is healthy competition and an improved standard of football," the report states. "Europe can be more than happy with their performance at Brazil 2014," the report said, after winning for the first time in the Americas. The four winless Asian confederation teams "lacked creativity, ideas, penetration and players who could turn a match in their favour." FIFAs experts also hope the World Cup will encourage a generation of unselfish players putting their team first. "Individual skill can only be effective if it is fully in sync with the efforts and philosophy of the team."
