Sharks look to stay red-hot

San Jose (18-3-1) at Dallas (7-10-4) 8:30 p.m. EST

DALLAS (Ticker) -- The San Jose Sharks continue to pile up wins

- whomever is playing in net.

San Jose looks to extend its winning streak to six games when it

visits the Dallas Stars on Friday.

The Sharks, who went 5-1-1 while goaltender Evgeni Nabokov

nursed a lower-body injury, won in overtime, 3-2, in his return

against the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday. Brian Boucher has

posted a 1.88 goals-against average as the backup goaltender.

A finalist for the Vezina Trophy last season, Nabokov made 24

saves in his first game since November 6 and improved to 11-2-0

on Joe Thornton's game-winner 45 seconds into the extra period.

Dallas is 0-2-1 in its last three home games and have not won at

the American Airlines Center since October 29.

The Stars snapped a three-game losing streak on Tuesday, scoring

three unanswered goals in a 4-3 victory over the Minnesota Wild.

Loui Eriksson tallied the game-winner with seven minutes

remaining and also dished out two assists.

San Jose won the first meeting, 2-1, on November 8 after the

Sharks were eliminated by the Stars in six games during the

conference semifinals last season.
