NEWS

Covers Preview - Poor defense gave the Dallas Stars fits in the early part of the season - and more problems in their own end may have torpedoed their playoff chances. The Stars look to halt a four-game losing streak - and resuscitate their fading postseason hopes - as they entertain the Colorado Avalanche on Friday. Dallas has surrendered a whopping 22 goals over the course of its skid, and is tied with the Avalanche for 11th place in the Western Conference.
