LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Forty-somethings Jaromir Jagr and Ray Whitney scored 4:22 apart in the third period, lifting Dallas to a 2-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night for the Stars' fourth straight win at Staples Center. The 41-year-old Jagr and 40-year-old Whitney scored in the same game for the second time this season. On Jan. 19 against Phoenix, they became the fourth pair of teammates age 40 or older to score in the same game since 1942-43. Kari Lehtonen made 40 saves to earn his first shutout of the season. He has won four of his last five appearances against the Kings. Lehtonen faced at least 40 shots for the fourth time this season and improved to 16-3-1 in games where opponents record at least 35 shots dating to last season. The Kings' three-game winning streak ended as did their run of five straight wins at home since losing to the Stars 5-2 on March 7. Jagr scored twice in that game. Jonathan Quick stopped 19 shots for the Kings. After two scoreless periods during which the Kings outshot the Stars 30-15, Jagr finally got his team untracked. He scored his team-leading 12th goal at 6:34, taking the puck wide and holding it before shooting and watching it bounce into the net. Whitney made it 2-0 at 10:56, beating Quick stickside for his fifth goal. NOTES: President Barack Obama will honor the Stanley Cup champion Kings and MLS Cup champion Los Angeles Galaxy at the White House on Tuesday. ... Whitney turns 41 in May. ... The Kings had won 11 of 12 at home since Feb. 15, with their only loss in that span against the Stars. ... The Stars improved to 2-4-0 in the second game of back-to-backs, having lost 4-3 at Colorado on Wednesday after blowing a third-period lead.
