The Stars lead the NHL with 10 wins after regulation, including
four during the recent streak. Eight of those triumphs have
come in the shootout, where Dallas is a perfect 8-0.
Dallas needed just 60 minutes to defeat Nashville, 2-1, on
Wednesday. Philippe Boucher and Brenden Morrow each scored in
the second period and Turco stopped 23 shots to improve to 6-2
with one tie in his career against the Predators.
Nashville has bounced back from that defeat by winning two
straight, including Saturday's dominant 6-0 triumph over the
Chicago Blackhawks. Scott Hartnell recorded his first career
hat trick and Tomas Vokoun made 40 saves for this second shutout
of the season.
Vokoun, whose 27 wins trail only Turco for the NHL lead, is just
5-13 with a tie in his career against the Stars.
