The Minnesota Wild hope to stretch their winning streak to six games tonight in Dallas, where they'll face the Stars.
By winning eight of their last 10 games, Minnesota also vanquished foes on the road in buildings where they hadn't won in regulation in ages -- at Vancouver, and at Detroit.
Tonight's game follows a similar script. The Wild haven't won in Big D since 2003, reports Fox Sports North. That's a 16-game winless streak at American Airlines Center.
Red-hot Wild goalie Niklas Backstrom, who registered his first shutout of the season on Saturday against San Jose, has never won in Dallas, going 0-5-3 in eight starts.
