NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Ticker) -- The Nashville Predators have established home dominance in the first two months of the season.

The Predators look for their 11th home victory in 12 games Saturday when they meet the Dallas Stars.

Nashville started a five-game homestand Thursday with its fifth consecutive home win, a 4-3 triumph over the Los Angeles Kings. Steve Sullivan had a goal and an assist and defenseman Marek Zidlicky added three assists for the Predators, who have won six of seven overall.

Although the Stars have won five of six, they failed to tie the franchise record of scoring at least three goals in 14 straight games, falling to Phoenix, 4-1, on Friday.

Jussi Jokinen scored a power-play goal for Dallas to give the Stars a tally with the man-advantage in their last 13 contests, the second-longest streak in franchise history.

Sullivan recorded a hat trick for Nashville in a 5-3 triumph over Dallas in the last meeting on November 10, which preceded a five-game winning streak for the Stars.
