Chicago Blackhawks (4-9-0) at Dallas Stars (6-5-1), 8:30 p.m.

(Sports Network) - The Chicago Blackhawks will try to win back-to-back games for the first time this season as they visit the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center.

The Blackhawks ended a four-game losing streak Wednesday, winning 6-5 in overtime at St. Louis.

Brent Seabrook scored his first NHL goal, 35 seconds into overtime, and Martin Lapointe, Tyler Arnason and Pavel Vorobiev tallied a goal and two assists each for the Blues.

Kyle Calder and Jaroslav Spacek added goals, Adrian Aucoin tallied two assists and Craig Anderson made 32 saves for Chicago.

Prior to the win, the Blackhawks had the tough task of playing the red-hot Detroit Red Wings for three consecutive games during a five-day span. Those tilts all resulted in losses.

The Stars were handed a 6-3 loss versus the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday. Lubomir Visnovksy had his first career hat trick to lead LA.

Martin Skoula had a goal and an assist and Mike Modano and Jussi Jokinen each had goals for the Stars, who have lost three out of their last four.

Johan Hedberg made 20 saves in the defeat.

Modano has registered a point in four consecutive games, posting three goals and two assists in that stretch.

Stars right wing Bill Guerin missed his second straight game with back spasms and is questionable for tonight's game as well.

The Stars are unbeaten (8-0-2) in the last 10 meetings against Chicago. The Blackhawks are also winless in their last six trips (0-5-1) to Dallas.
