WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) -- Andrew Ladd scored twice to help the Winnipeg Jets beat Dallas 5-2 Wednesday night, snapping the Stars' six-game winning streak. Nik Antropov, Evander Kane and Eric Fehr also scored for the Jets, who moved six points behind Washington for the eighth and last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Loui Eriksson had both goals for Dallas. The Stars, who won 1-0 at Minnesota the previous night, dropped to 1-10-2 in the second games of back-to-backs. With the Stars trailing 5-0, Eriksson spoiled Ondrej Pavelec's shot at a fifth shutout this season with 3:31 left in the second period. Eriksson closed the scoring with his 25th goal of the season with 3:44 to go in the third. Antropov got Winnipeg going at 2:21 of the first period on a crisp wrist shot from the left faceoff circle that seemed to catch Dallas goalie Richard Bachman off-guard. Kane then struck early in the second to make it 2-0, slapping in Alexander Burmistrov's rebound at 1:19. The Stars looked tired as they tried to keep up with the Jets, who were well-rested after a four-day break and drawing energy from the packed house screaming "Go Jets Go." Fehr, replacing an injured Chris Thorburn on the Jets' fourth line, scored his second goal of the season on a breakaway at 8:28 of the second period. Less than a minute later, Ladd was fed his own rebound by center Bryan Little and banged it in to make it 4-0. Ladd then tipped in Dustin Byfuglien's hard drive from his own blue-line 13 seconds into Winnipeg's second power-play chance of the night at 3:48 to go in the period. Eriksson got the Stars on the board 17 seconds later. The last few minutes of the game were marred by a scuffle involving several players that gave Winnipeg one more power-play opportunity. The melee with 2:47 remaining resulted in 10-minute misconducts to Dallas' Vernon Fiddler and Winnipeg's Tanner Glass and a game misconduct to the Stars' Adam Burish. NOTES: Blake Wheeler entered the game with a four-game scoring streak that didn't go any further but he picked up two more assists to boost his team-leading points total to 58. ... It was the Stars first regulation loss since Feb. 19.
