About the Stars
The Stars lost 4-1 to Vancouver on Friday night at American Airlines Center. The Stars outshot the Canucks, 45-22, but gave up three power-play goals in the game.
'We did a lot of good things. We had 45 shots and hit a bunch of posts,' said forward Steve Ott. 'Our penalty kill was awful. If our penalty kill plays well we have a chance to win that game, obviously.'
The Stars are 1-3-1 in their last five games.

About the Blues
The Blues ran their winning streak to five games with a 4-3 win over Phoenix in St. Louis on Friday. The Blues built a 4-0 lead and then held off the Coyotes, who scored three times in the third period to make a game of it.
"We wanted to finish the year on a winning note," Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak said. "Fortunately for us, we got a 4-0 lead. We got a little comfortable in there, giving them opportunities to score goals, but they all count. We got the two points and that's all that matters right now."
