Stars host Penguins looking to snap skid

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

Post-Gazette.

"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."
