Records: Blue Jackets 41-31-7, 89 points; Stars 39-29-11, 89 pts.

About the Blue Jackets: They started an unenviable finishing kick Tuesday night at home with a 4-3 overtime win against Phoenix, a team battling the Stars for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Jackets’ visit to Dallas starts a regular season-ending southern road swing that also has stops at Tampa Bay and Florida. ... Forward RJ Umberger, who leads the team with eight power-play goals, is out at least the next two weeks with an upper body injury suffered in Sunday’s win over the Islanders.

About the Stars: The Stars will start Wednesday’s game trailing 1-0. That was the score on March 10 when the game between these teams was canceled because Rich Peverley collapsed on the Stars bench and was taken to the hospital. The game will be replayed in full but Columbus gets to keep the goal it scored. ... The Stars are 7-0-1 in their last eight games at home and have won seven of their last 10 overall.
