Detroit (29-7-5) at Dallas (17-17-6), 8:00 pm EST
DALLAS (Ticker) — The Detroit Red Wings will look for their
seventh consecutive victory when they meet the Dallas Stars on
Monday in a rematch of the 2007-08 Western Conference finals.
Mikael Samuelsson netted the go-ahead goal with 2:34 left in the
third period as the Red Wings posted their sixth straight win
Saturday, a 3-1 triumph over the Buffalo Sabres.
Samuelsson also registered an assist, Jiri Hudler scored a goal
and set up another and Marian Hossa added an insurance tally
with 95 seconds remaining for Detroit, which is 14-3-1 since the
end of November.
The Red Wings will now embark on a six-game road trip – all
against conference foes. Detroit cruised to a 6-1 victory over
the Stars on Thursday in their only other meeting this season.
Dallas followed that up with a 1-0 shootout loss to the Phoenix
Coyotes for its fourth loss in six games.
Despite the setback, Marty Turco was credited with his first
shutout of the season and 34th career after making 28 saves in
regulation and overtime.
