The Dallas Stars attempt to conclude their three-game road trip with a winning record as they visit the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday. Dallas split the first two contests of its trek, dropping a 3-2 decision at Montreal on Tuesday before posting a 6-3 victory in Ottawa two nights later. Trevor Daley recorded a goal and two assists while fellow defenseman John Klingberg snapped a tie midway through the third period after the Stars squandered a 3-0 lead.
Winnipeg returns home after a trip to Pennsylvania that produced a pair of losses. Two days after a 5-3 defeat in Pittsburgh, the Jets suffered a 5-2 setback at Philadelphia on Thursday despite a two-goal performance from Mathieu Perreault. Winnipeg outscored the Stars 7-3 in winning two meetings in Dallas earlier this season.TV:
