STARS (32-35-11) at LIGHTNING (38-29-10)
6 p.m. ET; SUN, FS-SW+, NHL.TV
Stars team scope
The Dallas Stars will have another opportunity to spoil the Stanley Cup Playoff hopes of an Eastern Conference team when they finish their five-game road trip. Dallas ended the Carolina Hurricanes' 13-game point streak with a 3-0 win Saturday. "We knew how hungry they were," coach Lindy Ruff said. "All we can do is play spoilers and take pride in how we play." Dallas defeated Tampa Bay on Feb. 18 when Jamie Benn scored in overtime for a 4-3 win. The Stars are 4-2-1 in their past seven games and have given up 10 goals during that stretch. Goalie Antti Niemi could start after Kari Lehtonen made 25 saves for his shutout Saturday.

Lightning team scope
The Tampa Bay Lightning are five points behind the Ottawa Senators for the second wild card into the playoffs from the Eastern Conference. Center Tyler Johnson, who hasn't played since sustaining a lower-body injury on March 9, will be in the lineup as will defenseman Jason Garrison, who missed four games with a lower-body injury. Center Steven Stamkos (knee) told the Tampa Bay Times following an optional morning skate Sunday that he will not play. "You are sitting here thinking we are going to get guys back [Saturday] and then we didn't," coach Jon Cooper said Saturday. "So guys are getting close, it's just unfortunate that they can't go." Goalie Peter Budaj will start after Andrei Vasilevskiy made 34 saves in a 2-1 overtime loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.
