Pittsburgh (31-26-6) at Dallas (29-25-7), 3:00 p.m. EST
DALLAS (Ticker) — The Dallas Stars’ current skid is costing
them games in the tight Western Conference.
Looking to snap a four-game losing streak, the Stars host the
Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday.
Dallas had won 10 of 13 prior to slipping into its swoon, which
has them sitting in 11th place in the conference with 65 points.
It had been as high as sixth in mid-February.
The Stars are coming off a 4-3 loss to the Anaheim Ducks and
have scored five total goals throughout their dreary stretch.
The Penguins, who have won two in a row and four of five, may be
without captain Sidney Crosby for a third straight game.
Nursing a groin injury, Crosby skated for 45 minutes prior to
Friday’s 5-4 overtime win over Chicago, but still might not feel
up to playing in this contest, according to the Pittsburgh
“Turning and cutting, I felt a little better, but it’s still
there,” he told the newspaper. “I can’t really open it up and go
too hard yet. You want to make sure you’re out of the woods as
far as it being a nagging thing. It’s not an easy thing to
judge all the time.”
