DALLAS (Ticker) -- One reason why the Dallas Stars are among
the league's elite teams is their ability to come back and win
when things appear bleak.
The Stars try to run their unbeaten streak against the Chicago
Blackhawks to 14 straight games when the teams meet Friday for
the final time this season.
Having won eight of its last 10 contests, Dallas hold the league
record for most single-season victories (11) when trailing
after two periods.
Needing six wins to set a single-season franchise mark, the
Stars lead Anaheim by 13 points in the Pacific Division race
with 13 games to play.
Jere Lehtinen tied a career-high with his 31st goal and Jon
Klemm and Stu Barnes added third-period tallies for Dallas in
Wednesday's 4-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild.
Ranked 29th in goals (174) - only one ahead of Columbus -
Chicago has lost eight of 10 and is tied with St. Louis for last
place in the Western Conference.
James Wisniewski and Mikael Holmqvist scored in the first period
and Kyle Calder added a third-period tally with 1:19 left for
the Blackhawks in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes.
Dallas has won all-three encounters against Chicago this season
- with a 21-6 edge in goals - including a 7-2 victory in their
most recent matchup March 5. Jason Arnott had two goals and
Brendan Morrow added a goal and two assists for the Stars.
