DALLAS – Marty Turco made 16 saves for his 22nd career shutout and Junior Lessard scored his first NHL goal as the Dallas Stars beat Edmonton 4-0, ending the Oilers’ five-game winning streak.

Mike Modano and Stephane Robidas each had a goal and an assist for the Stars, who have won three straight by a combined score of 16-3.

Jussi Jokinen added a power-play goal for the Stars.

Edmonton, which had won in its previous two trips to Dallas, is 8-34-4-1 all-time on the road in the regular season against the Stars.

Turco knocked the puck away from Jarret Stoll on a breakaway midway through the second period, and denied Ryan Smyth from close range at 4:20 of the final period to preserve Dallas’ first shutout of the season.

Turco has stopped 61 of 64 shots over the last three games.

Jokinen’s deflection of Jason Arnott’s shot from the left point while Dallas held a man advantage produced the game’s first goal at 12:24 of the opening period.

Lessard, playing his fifth NHL game, batted Modano’s centering pass past Oilers goaltender Jussi Markkanen at 17:00 of the first period for Lessard’s first NHL point, giving Dallas a 2-0 edge.

The Stars dominated the first period with a 14-2 shots advantage.

Robidas’ first goal of the season on the backhand at 14:44 of the second period extended Dallas’ lead to 3-0.

Modano’s rebound at 1:48 of the third period for his seventh goal of the season made it 4-0. At that point, Oilers coach Craig MacTavish pulled Markkanen and gave backup Mike Morrison his first NHL action.

Notes: Edmonton’s depleted corps of defensemen is missing Marc-Andre Bergeron (broken finger), Cory Cross (sprained knee) and Igor Ulanov (broken toe). Defenseman Chris Pronger played despite a bruised right foot. … Centers Michael Peca (concussion) and Marty Reasoner (swollen right) are also out for Edmonton. … Dallas had lost three of its previous four at home.
