FIVE THINGS TO WATCH:

1. The Dallas Stars and Phoenix Coyotes meet up for their fifth of six meetings on Saturday night. The Stars and Coyotes are even in the season series with a 2-2-0 record. Six of the last eight games between these two teams have been one-goal affairs with four of those games going to overtime or the shootout. Dallas is looking to win their first game in regulation in Glendale since March 1, 2011 (3-2 W).

2.
A win against the Coyotes on Saturday would mark the 15th consecutive season that the Stars reach the 30-win mark. Coming into 2011-12, Dallas trailed the Detroit Red Wings (20 seasons, now 21), the Colorado Avalanche (18 seasons, two wins shy of making it 19), the New Jersey Devils (15 seasons, now 16), and the Toronto Maple Leafs (15 seasons, one win shy of making it 16), as the only NHL clubs that have had more consecutive 30-win campaigns than Dallas (active streak). These totals include the lockout shortened 1994-95 season.

3.
Dallas is looking to get off to a quick start against Phoenix on Saturday. The Coyotes have scored the first goal of the game between these two clubs in each of the four games in the season series so far and in the last five games overall. The last time Dallas scored the first goal of the game against the Coyotes was on March 1, 2011 (Tom Wandell).

4.
The Stars will play their 11th back-to-back set on Saturday (at Phoenix) and Sunday (vs. Nashville). The club has an overall record of 5-12-2 with a 5-4-1 record on the first day, and a 0-8-1 record on the second day.

5.
Dallas enters Saturday’s game having been shorthanded 213 times, or tied for the fifth most in the NHL. They have been more disciplined lately, allowing the opposition over three power plays in a game on nine separate occasions in their past 28 games. In Dallas’ first 29 games of the season, they found themselves shorthanded 20 times.
