CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) -- The Calgary Flames hope their home-ice advantage is enough to snap a six-game losing streak to the Dallas Stars when the teams meet Thursday.

Calgary has split its four contests since the Olympic break and holds a one-point lead over Colorado in the race for the top spot in the tight Northwest Division. Vancouver is two points back and Edmonton is four off the pace.

Dion Phaneuf scored his 15th goal and Kristian Huselius added his 14th for the Flames in Tuesday's 3-2 defeat to the Nashville Predators. The loss lowered Calgary's home mark to 22-7-3.

Dallas has scored 16 goals in a three-game winning streak and has won all nine shootouts. The Stars have a 10-point advantage over Los Angeles in the Pacific Division while trailing Detroit by two for the best record in the Western Conference.

Rookie Jussi Jokinen scored a penalty shot goal in the second period and added the shootout clincher for Dallas in Tuesday's 4-3 triumph over the Oilers.

Brendan Morrison scored midway through the third period and goaltender Marty Turco recorded his 100th career victory when Dallas posted a 2-1 triumph over Calgary in their last meeting on October 22.

The Flames have dropped the last three home encounters against the Stars and have not beaten them since March 27, 2003.
