The Dallas Stars will be entering a playoff-type atmosphere when they face the Phoenix Coyotes Tuesday night. These squads are fighting each other for playoff position, tied at 83 points, looking to secure a Pacific Division title and also establish third place in the Western Conference with 10 games to go on the regular season schedule.
After being the hottest team in the NHL, winning 10 out of 11 games for a stretch, the Stars have been reeling in their last couple of games. Dallas suffered a 5-2 loss to the Winnipeg Jets last Wednesday, before dropping a 4-1 decision to the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday.
There is good news for Dallas, though. Sheldon Souray and Radek Dvorak have benefited from three days rest and appear to be ready to return to the Stars lineup.
Here is a look at the game schedule and television information:
Date/time: Tuesday March 20, 7 p.m. CST
