LOS ANGELES (Ticker) - Just when it seemed as if the Los Angeles Kings might never win another game, they suddenly have a chance to head into the Olympic break on a winning streak.

The Kings will try to post their first consecutive victories in more than a month Sunday when they skate with the Dallas Stars, who are looking to avoid dropping two straight games for the first time in nearly as long.

Los Angeles is coming off Saturday's 5-4 overtime triumph over Chicago behind defenseman Joe Corvo's goal 40 seconds into the extra session.

Craig Conroy added a power-play goal and Pavol Demitra a shorthanded tally for the Kings, who have not won two straight since a three-game run from December 31-January 5 - a streak that included a home-and-home sweep of Dallas.

Dallas enters on the heels of just its second loss in nine games, Friday's 6-3 setback against San Jose. Captain Mike Modano, Niklas Hagman and Stu Barnes scored for the Stars, who were doomed by four second-period goals.

The last time Dallas dropped two straight games was a three-game skid from January 16-20.

The Stars posted a 5-4 victory over the Kings on October 5 but since have dropped four straight meetings, getting outscored by a 19-9 margin along the way.
