FIVE THINGS TO WATCH:

1. The Dallas Stars and Minnesota Wild conclude their season series on Tuesday night at Xcel Energy Center. The Stars lead the season series with a 2-1-0 record, and are looking to win their first game in Minnesota since Jan. 9, 2011 (4-0 W).

2.
The Stars have NHL’s best record over the last 10 games (9-0-1 record). It is the first time they have earned a point in 10 consecutive games since Dec. 27, 2002-Jan. 22, 2003 when the team went 12 straight games without a loss in regulation.

3.
Dallas’ next point in the standings guarantees that their season will finish with a .500 record for the 15th consecutive season. Only the Detroit Red Wings have a longer such streak (20 seasons). Additionally, finishing above .500 will make Joe Nieuwendyk only the 32nd general manager in NHL history to guide his team to a winning season in his first three full seasons. 68% of the first 31 GM’s eventually guided their team to the Stanley Cup Finals (stats since NHL took control of Stanley Cup in 1927-28) (Source: www.nhlgms.com)

4.
Over the last 30 days, no trio of line mates in the NHL has earned more points than Dallas’ Eriksson-Ribeiro-Ryder line (43 points). The line of Cole-Desharnais-Pacioretty from Montreal is the next closest with 32 points.

5.
Dallas will play their second-to-last back-to-back set of games on Tuesday (Minnesota) and Wednesday (Winnipeg). They have a 6-4-2 record on the first day and a 1-9-2 record on the second day.
