The Dallas Stars will try for their sixth straight win when they play the Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center on Thursday.
The Stars have trailed in each of their past five wins, allowing two goals or fewer in each game. They've never come from behind to win six consecutive games in Stars/Minnesota North Stars history.
Dallas, which defeated the Los Angeles Kings 2-1 on Wednesday, is playing the second game of a four-game road trip.
Forward Jakob Silfverberg won't play for the Ducks after sustaining an upper-body injury in a 4-3 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday. He leads the Ducks with 15 goals and is second with 28 points.
Anaheim is 1-3-1 in its past five games.
Players to watch
Stars defenseman Esa Lindell has seven assists in an NHL career-high four-game point streak.
Ducks forward Ryan Getzlaf has five points (one goal, four assists) in his past two games.
