The Dallas Stars, the strongest team in the NHL over their past 10 games, gaining 9-0-1 record in that time span, goes head-to-head with the Minnesota Wild on the road Tuesday. Dallas is looking to win its sixth straight game, which would include victories over the Edmonton Oilers, Calgary Flames, Vancouver Canucks, San Jose Sharks and Anaheim Ducks.

Since the Stars are plagued by injuries, down to just six healthy defensemen, they grabbed Jordie Benn from the AHL. Injuries to Dallas players include: D Sheldon Souray (lower body) and LW Jake Dowell (finger) are doubtful. RW Radek Dvorak (ankle) is questionable.

The Wild are coming off a 4-3 loss to the Flames on Sunday. For Minnesota, this is the second game of a five-game home stand. Dallas is 2-1-0 against the Wild this season but lost the previous game in Minnesota on Jan. 21, 5-2.

Date/Time: Tuesday, March 13, 7:00 p.m. CT

TV: Fox Sports Southwest

Radio: KTCK-AM 1310/KDTK-FM 104.1
