Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

This is the last regular season match-up for the Dallas Stars and Chicago Blackhawks.

Loading Scores

The Stars have only gotten three whole points in their previous four outings versus Chicago. They find themselves in dire need of points to keep pace with the Phoenix Coyotes for the last wild card spot in the west for the Stanley Cup playoffs.

There's also a notable streaks on the roster as Dallas plays in their second night of this back-to-back set:

*Tyler Seguin has a career high nine game point streak going (7 goals, 9 assists, 16 points in that span)
*Jamie Benn is on a three game point streak (3 goals, 2 assists, 5 points) and Ray Whitney has points in two straight
*Alex Chiasson hasn't scored in five games
*Valeri Nichushkin hasn't scored in 13 games straight

We won't know starting goaltender for the Stars until warmups, so check back in with us to see who gets the nod in the pipes as we gear up for another critical game down the stretch here.

Let's go Stars!
