Dallas had won eight games in a row before suffering a 3-2 defeat on Saturday at the Chicago Blackhawks, who have the second least points in the league. Goalie Jake Oettinger (31-13-4) was rested in that contest and is likely to go after his seventh straight win on Sunday.

The Avalanche dropped to 2-3-1 in their last six games after a 6-2 setback at Edmonton on Friday night. Nathan MacKnnon has five of his 131 points — second in the league — in three games versus the Stars this season.
