Benn put the visitors in front for the third time when the left winger wristed his eighth goal of the season past Pavelec at 13:46 of the frame.
Wheeler evened things, 3-3, when the puck deflected to him in the slot, only seconds after he got out of the penalty box at 14:53. He wristed his 11th of the season behind Lehtonen.
Benn scored his second of the game at 17:46 during the five-minute power play and Seguin did likewise at 18:49. Gonchar assisted on all three goals in the period, giving him four helpers in the game.
Noel replaced Pavelec with Al Montoya to start the third period, but the onslaught continued when Stars center Colton Sceviour scored his first goal of the season at 2:48.
From there, the only suspense was whether Wheeler would be the first Jet to post a hat-trick since the franchise relocated from Atlanta in May, 2011.
Wheeler didn't, although he came close in the last minute of play.
Jets center Olli Jokinen scored his eighth goal of the season in garbage time.
The victory improved the Stars' record to 15-11-5, while the Jets fell to 14-15-5. The Jets outshot the Stars 38-32.
