Hurricanes at Stars

7:30 p.m. Thursday, American Airlines Center, Dallas

TV: FSSW Radio: KTCK/1310 AM and 96.7 FM

Records: Hurricanes 26-23-9, 61 points; Stars 27-21-10, 64 pts.

About the Stars: They hope there is some momentum left from a 2-1 win over Phoenix on Feb. 8, their last game before the Winter Olympics break, that moved them into the eighth playoff spot in the Western Conference. ... Throw in gold medal-winners Jamie Benn and coach Lindy Ruff of Canada and goalie Kari Lehtonen’s bronze medal with Finland, and the Stars have a lot of positives heading into the final six weeks of the season. ... Six of the Stars’ next seven games are at home.

About the Hurricanes: Carolina is already back in action, losing 3-2 at Buffalo on Tuesday in a game originally scheduled for Jan. 9 but postponed after a blizzard hit Buffalo. ... Goalie Cam Ward is back in the lineup after being sidelined since Dec. 31 with a lower-body injury. He allowed three goals on 18 shots. ... Carolina will be playing the second game of a five-game road trip in Dallas. ... Hurricanes defenseman Joni Pitkanen (left heel surgery) is out for the season.
