GLENDALE, Arizona (Ticker) -- A pair of teams currently heading in opposite directions face off Saturday when the surging Phoenix Coyotes host the struggling Dallas Stars at the Glendale Arena.

The Coyotes opened their season with a 1-4-1 mark under first-year coach Wayne Gretzky before rallying for wins in four of their last six games. Phoenix posted a 3-2 victory over Calgary on Thursday behind two goals from Mike Comrie and 13 saves from Curtis Joseph, who recorded the 400th win of his impressive career.

Meanwhile, Dallas has fallen short in four of its last five contests, including Friday's 5-3 loss to Edmonton. The Stars received a goal and an assist from both Jason Arnott and Bill Guerin but still lost to an Oilers squad that entered with a seven-game losing streak.

Marty Turco allowed five goals on 25 shots - the third time in his last five games he has yielded that many goals.

Saturday marks the Stars' only road game in a three-week span from October 16 to November 5.

The teams last squared off October 11 at Dallas with Mike Modano collecting a goal and an assist as the Stars recorded a 3-2 triumph.
