The Dallas Stars can clinch a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a point against the Philadelphia Flyers at American Airlines Center on Tuesday.
Dallas, which is 3-0-1 in its past four games, also would reach the postseason for the first time since 2016 if the Arizona Coyotes lose to the Los Angeles Kings in any fashion.
The Stars are three points ahead of the Colorado Avalanche for the first wild card into the playoffs from the Western Conference, and five points behind the Nashville Predators and St. Louis Blues for second place in the Central Division.
The Flyers, who were eliminated from playoff contention Saturday, will try to avoid their third straight loss.
Players to watch
Flyers forward Claude Giroux has 20 points (four goals, 16 assists) in his past 18 games.
Stars forward Alexander Radulov has 15 points (10 goals, five assists) in his past 13 games.
