Vancouver Canucks (35-24-6) at Dallas Stars (42-19-3), 8:30 p.m.

(Sports Network) - The Vancouver Canucks try to end a three-game slide tonight when they visit the Dallas Stars at the AmericanAirlines Center in the back end of a home-and-home.

The Canucks enter Monday's action third in the Northwest Division with 76 points -- four behind the frontrunning Colorado Avalanche.

In Saturday's set opener, Mike Modano scored both Dallas goals as the Stars defeated the Canucks, 2-1, at General Motors Place. Modano has tallied four goals in the six games following the Olympics.

Jere Lehtinen had two assists for the Stars, who won for the fourth time in their last five games. Marty Turco stopped 18 of 19 shots to pick up his NHL- leading 33rd win.

The Stars lead the Pacific Division by 10 points over second-place Los Angeles, and are six off the pace of Detroit for the overall Western Conference lead.

Henrik Sedin scored his 17th goal of the season for the Canucks, who lost for the fourth time in their last five games. Alexander Auld stopped 31 of 33 shots in the loss.

Vancouver opens a three-game road trip tonight and will visit Nashville on Tuesday. Dallas will visit Los Angeles on Thursday.

The Stars are 2-1 against the Canucks this season, and have won six of the last eight meetings overall.
