Sunday night, the Dallas Stars will wrap up a 3 game Canadian road trip at the Rexall Place as they face the Edmonton Oilers.
The Dallas Stars notched their 3rd win in a row on Friday night as the edged the Calgary Flames 2 -1. After the teams played a scoreless 1 st period, the Stars opened up the scoring in the 2nd. Jamie Benn put the Stars up 1 - 0 early in the 2nd and later on, Trevor Daley made it a 2 - 0 game with his 7th goal of the season. As the period came to a close, the Flames cut the lead to 2 -1. But that was a far as things would go as neither team could light the lamp in the 3rd period. Dallas beat Edmonton in late November and they should be able to continue their win streak with another victory over the Oilers on Sunday.
The Edmonton Oilers lost their 6th game in a row on Tuesday after falling to the San Jose Sharks 4 - 3. The Oilers had their chances to end the losing streak on Tuesday but the just couldn't. Edmonton had a 1 - 0 lead after the 1st but they gave up 2 goals in less than 2 minutes in the beginning of the 2nd to go down 2 - 1. After regaining the lead behind 2 more goals, the Oilers were up 3 -2 going into the 3rd. But 2 San Jose goals in less than a minute in the 3rd period sank the Oilers for good. For the 3rd time in the losing streak, the Oilers gave up 4 or more goals and the defense will have to tighten up if they want to end the slump.
