FIVE THINGS TO WATCH:

1. The Dallas Stars and Phoenix Coyotes conclude their season series on Tuesday night, with Dallas holding a 2-2-1 record. Three of the five games between these two clubs this season have gone to overtime or shootout. The Coyotes and Stars are presently tied with 83 points in the standings – Dallas holds tie breaker (fewer games played).

2.
Glen Gulutzan is one victory shy of earning 40 for the season. He will join Ken Hitchcock and Dave Tippett as the only coaches in franchise history to earn 40-or-more wins in their first season as head coach. He will also be the first rookie head coach to 40 wins since Guy Boucher won 46 games last season with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

3.
Statistically, the Stars and Coyotes are very evenly matched. Both have 83 points in the standings, both rank in the top-10 on the penalty kill and bottom-10 on the power play. They have scored an even 2.5 goals per game and have a nearly even goals allowed ratio (DAL: 2.6, PHX: 2.5).

4.
Dallas has allowed just one power play goal over their last 10 games. In total, they have killed off 30 of the last 31 opposition power plays (96.8%). The Stars are currently ranked 10th in the NHL on the penalty kill, up from 18th at the All-Star Break.

5.
With 749 all-time victories, the Dallas Stars are just nine victories shy of equaling their win total as the Minnesota North Stars (758 all-time wins). If Dallas reaches 758 wins this season, it will occur on the 18th season since the club moved to Texas. It took the Minnesota North Stars 27 NHL seasons to reach that many victories.
