Surging Panthers host Stars

Dallas (19-18-7) at Florida (21-16-8), 7:30 p.m. EST

SUNRISE, Florida (Ticker) -- The Florida Panthers look to keep

rolling on Wednesday when they host the Dallas Stars in the

final game for each club before the All-Star break.

The Panthers have earned a point in every game since the start

of the new year, going 5-0-3 in the month of January.

While Florida goaltender Tomas Vokoun is 4-0-2 this month, its

the suddenly active Panthers' offense that has been key of late.

The club has scored 35 goals during its impressive eight-game

run, with the line of David Booth, Richard Zednik and Nathan

Horton providing the biggest spark.

Booth scored his 19th goal of the season in Monday's 3-2

shootout loss to Buffalo and has 17 points over his last 14

games.

Dallas comes in off a frustrating 4-2 loss at Tampa Bay on

Monday. The Stars entered the third period with a 2-1 lead, but

let the game slip away during the final 20 minutes.

Left wing Loui Eriksson scored his team-leading 22nd goal in the

defeat and is third on the team in scoring with 32 points -

trailing only Brad Richards (38) and Mike Ribeiro (36).
