DETROIT (Ticker) -- Marty Turco looks to finally break through against his career nemesis when the Dallas Stars visit the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday.

Turco never has beaten the Red Wings in his five-year NHL career, posting an 0-5-0 record with five ties. The two-time All-Star goaltender stopped 19 shots in the first meeting between the teams this season on December 27, but the Stars dropped a 4-1 decision.

Dallas hopes to carry momentum from a thrilling 4-3 shootout victory over the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim on Friday. Turco surrendered three goals before being replaced after the first period, but the Stars rallied for three unanswered tallies before winning in the shootout.

Brenden Morrow tallied twice and backup goalie Johan Hedberg stopped all 16 shots he faced for Dallas, which improved to 13-8-1 at home this season.

The Stars ironically have fared better on the road with a 13-4-1 mark, but they will be hard-pressed to maintain that level of success against a Red Wings squad which has won five of its last six at home.

Defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom scored a pair of power-play goals Friday as Detroit posted a 3-1 triumph over the Nashville Predators.

Manny Legace stopped 29 shots to win for the second time in as many nights since returning from injured reserve, as the Red Wings continued their stellar play on special teams.

Detroit, which owns a nine-game unbeaten streak against Dallas, enters Sunday's contest with the top power play in the NHL along with the league's third-ranked penalty-killing unit.
