Edmonton (10-10-2) at Dallas (7-11-4), 6:00 pm EST
DALLAS (Ticker) -- The Edmonton Oilers entered this season with
lofty expectations and have faltered since a promising start.
After dropping five of their last seven games, the Oilers hope
to begin a stretch of consistency when they visit the struggling
Dallas Stars on Sunday.
Edmonton began the season with four straight wins, but have
since failed to win more than two in a row at any time. The
Oilers snapped a two-game skid with a 4-2 victory over the St.
Louis Blues on Saturday and have the chance to notch a two-game
win streak for the first time since November 9-10 in this
Though Edmonton is 0-3-1 at home in November, it has been
impressive on the road, going 6-3-0 this month.
Dallas has also failed to generate any positive momentum and
things have not gotten easier without injured captain Brenden
Morrow, who suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the
Stars' 6-3 loss on November 20. Since then, they are 1-2-1.
Dallas, another club that entered with high hopes, has yet to
record a winning streak. The Stars have surrendered three or
more goals in six of their 11 games in November.
