About the Stars: Dallas is coming off a 2-0 victory in Vancouver on Wednesday in which goalie Kari Lehtonen made 27 saves and lowered his goals-against average to 2.03 while winning three of the past four games. … Wednesday’s shutout was a nice change for Dallas, which has allowed at least five goals seven times in the past 12 games. … Center Tyler Seguin, who leads the league in goals (23) and points (38), was held without a goal Wednesday for only the second time in six games this month. The game also snapped a four-game point streak for Seguin, who recorded seven points over that four-game stretch.

About the Flames: Calgary is coming off a 5-2 loss to the New York Rangers on Tuesday and is in danger of losing seven straight for the first time in 15 years. … Goaltender Karri Ramo allowed four goals on the 13 shots he faced against the Rangers before being replaced in net by Jonas Hiller, who will start Friday, according to coach Bob Hartley, whose multiyear contract extension was finalized Wednesday. Terms were not disclosed. … Calgary allowed a goal in all three situations Tuesday — one on the power play, one shorthanded and three at even strength — as the Flames lost their sixth straight.
