About the Stars
The Stars (22-18-3) won 5-1 over Vancouver Thursday at American Airlines Center. It was the sixth win in the last seven games (6-1-0) for the Stars, who moved into ninth place in the Western Conference and to within two points of eighth place. A win Friday will move them into the eighth spot.
“We kind of control our own destiny and every game is big for us,” said Stars center Cody Eakin, who had a goal and an assist in the game. “We’re going to give it our all and scratch and claw every chance we get and play our game from here on in.”
Goaltender Kari Lehtonen, who returned after missing three games with a groin injury, stopped 37 of 38 shots for the Stars.
Injuries: LW Lane MacDermid (chest) is day-to-day. RW Alex Chiasson (shoulder) is out.
