Surging Stars look to continue winning streak

Calgary (30-15-4) at Dallas (23-18-7) 8:30 p.m. EST

DALLAS (Ticker) -- Marty Turco and the Dallas Stars look to

continue their longest winning streak of the season Tuesday when

they host the Calgary Flames.

Thanks to the recent resurgence of Turco, the Stars are on a

four-game winning streak - their longest since a seven-game run

from January 29-February 11, 2008.

Turco has spearheaded Dallas' surge, posting a .948 save

percentage over the last four games. Two days after recording

his first career regular-season win at Detroit's Joe Louis

Arena, Turco made 35 saves in Saturday's 7-3 victory over the

Columbus Blue Jackets.

James Neal scored two goals and added an assist to pace the

Stars, who have scored 17 goals during the winning streak.

Dallas could be hard-pressed to duplicate that offensive output

Tuesday against the Flames, who have allowed a total of 28 goals

over their last 10 games. Calgary, which currently is first in

the Northwest Division, has gone 7-3-0 over that span.

The Flames will look to rebound from Monday's 4-3 loss to the

Colorado Avalanche, who peppered Calgary goaltender Miikka

Kiprusoff with 42 shots.

Jarome Iginla scored his 20th goal of the season for the Flames,

who lost their only previous meeting with the Stars this season

- a 3-1 decision in Dallas on December 2.
