One alarming Stars trend

Here's a statistic to keep an eye on during tonight's game against Carolina: The Stars are 1-5-3 after a win this season.

It's a telling number and one that helps explain why this club has been so inconsistent. The Stars currently sit at 10-6-6 with 26 points this season. That's good enough for ninth in a very tough and competitive Western Conference.

Dallas hasn't been able to get on any streaks, struggling to string wins together. They get a great opportunity against a Carolina Hurricanes team that is near the bottom of the Eastern Conference, but coming off a win on Saturday (more on Carolina is coming later).

Let's see if Dallas can generate some momentum off Saturday's win.
