(SportsNetwork.com) - The Dallas Stars are hoping their recent success against the Ottawa Senators can get them back on track when the clubs meet Tuesday in Big D. The Stars enter the opener of a three-game homestand locked in an 0-2-2 slide and the four-game skid comes directly on the heels of a 9-2-0 run from Dec. 6- Jan. 3. The club sits six points out of a playoff spot in the highly competitive Western Conference. However, Dallas has won five straight and seven of nine over the Senators. Ottawa has dropped three in a row and five of the past six meetings at American Airlines Center. Tonight marks the first time Stars forward Jason Spezza will face his former team. Spezza compiled 687 points (251 goals, 436 assists) over 11 seasons and 686 games with Ottawa, but he requested a trade from the Sens last spring and was eventually dealt to Dallas on July 1. Spezza was traded to the Stars along with forward prospect Ludwig Karlsson, while Ottawa received forwards Alex Chiasson, Alex Guptill, Nicolas Paul and a second-round pick in 2015. The 31-year-old Spezza is third on Dallas this season with 29 points off seven goals and 22 helpers. He signed a four-year extension with the Stars in November, keeping him under contract in Dallas through the 2018-19 season. It was nice to catch up. I saw some of the guys yesterday and will catch up with a few more guys today, Spezza said after Mondays practice. I think it is different when it is on your terms and in your rink. It will be different when I go back to Ottawa. Spezza and the Stars are scheduled to visit the Senators on Jan. 29. Dallas may ask for more than usual from Spezza as it may have to face Ottawa tonight without the help of captain Jamie Benn and fellow forwards Vernon Fiddler and Tyler Seguin, who are all questionable for Tuesday. Benn is dealing with an undisclosed injury, while Fiddler left Saturdays loss against Colorado with a lower-body issue. Seguin, meanwhile, was sent home from Mondays practice with an illness. Seguin is leading Dallas in goals (26) and points (48), while Benn is second in team scoring with 36 points on 12 goals and 24 assists. The Stars fell 4-3 in Denver on Saturday, as Matt Duchene picked up the deciding goal for the Avalanche early in the third period. Brett Ritchie, Colton Sceviour and Ales Hemsky scored for the Stars, while Kari Lehtonen stopped 26 shots in defeat. Lehtonen is expected to start tonight and owns an 8-5-0 record and 2.75 goals against average in 15 career games against the Senators. Ottawa enters tonight eight points out of a playoff spot in the East, but it was able to halt a three-game slide with Saturdays blowout win in Arizona. Craig Anderson made 31 saves, and the Sens scored five unanswered goals to top the Coyotes, 5-1. After Mikkel Boedker put the Coyotes on top early in the game, Milan Michalek and Clarke MacArthur scored first-period goals to give the Senators the lead for good. Ottawa also got goals from Mike Hoffman, Cody Ceci and David Legwand to improve to 1-1-1 on a four-game road trip that ends tonight. The Sens are just 9-11-4 as the guest this season. We finally got rewarded for our effort, Senators head coach Dave Cameron said. It feels good. Robin Lehner will get the start in net for Ottawa. He is 0-1-1 with a 2.88 GAA in his career against Dallas. After tonight, the Senators will close January by playing five of six on home ice. Ottawa will begin a brief two-game homestand Thursday against Montreal. Vapormax Plus Ireland .Former NBA forward Morris Peterson has been added to TSNs Toronto Raptors broadcast team.

The 31-year-old Spain midfielder hasnt played since Madrid lost in the Copa del Rey final to Atletico Madrid in May due to back and foot injuries.Los Angeles Kings 4, Winnipeg Jets 2 - (Jets 33-33-9, Road 16-18-3) - The question going into the game was would the Jets be able to build off the win in San Jose, or would the Kings build off their five game winning streak. It was game three of a five game road trip for the Jets. Ondrej Pavelec was back in goal after being injured in the opening period of the March 14 game against the New York Rangers. Jets were again minus Zach Bogosian because of injury, while Devin Setoguchi was again a healthy scratch. Mark Stuart, banged up late in the San Jose win, was back in the lineup. The Kings jumped on Pavelec early with Trevor Lewis squeezing one through the goalie at 2:42 to open the scoring. At 7:53, Anze Kopitar had one go in off his shin pads and after video review the goal stood and the Kings had a 2-0 lead. Kopitar would score his second of the game and 24th of the year at 17:37 as the Kings took a 3-0 lead to the dressing room. Shots at one time in the period were 12-4, and ended 16-11. Eric ODell and Matt Halischuk each had great chances on the same shift midway through the period, but neither could beat Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick. Al Montoya, who had started the last six games, started the second period, in what turned out to be a tighter checking frame. Jets did not give the Kings much room, but the Kings at the same time did not give the Jets much either. It was into the second half of the period before the Jets got their first shot on goal. Shots in the second period were 7-4 Los Angeles. By far the Jets best period was the third. Matt Halischuk with his fourth of the year got the Jets on the board 1:54 into the third, with Eric ODell and Evander Kane picking up assists. Kane is 4-5-9 in six ccareer games vs.dddddddddddd Los Angeles. With the Jets pressing for another and controlling the play, Kings Tyler Toffoli snapped one home at 4:59 to regain the three goal lead. Blake Wheeler with his team leading 26th got the Jets back to within two. Bryan Little and Dustin Byfuglien drew assists on the power play goal. Wheeler now has seven power play goals on the year. It was his 63rd point, one shy of his single season career high. The assist for Byfuglien was his 54th point of the year, a new single season high for points in a season. The Jets outshot the Kings 11-6 in the third but some big saves by Quick made the final 4-2. Jacob Trouba at 25:58 led the Jets in ice time, Byfuglien and Adam Pardy each had four shots on goal. Jets lost Keaton Ellerby to injury, with his status for Monday uncertain. Little took 17 face-offs and surpassed the 1500 mark in face-offs this season, a personal high for him. For Coach Paul Maurice, the slow start by his team was the difference. "We were taught a real good lesson in the first. We gave up way too much ice. Then we played as hard as we could for two periods. But needed to be smoother in the first. The other lesson was to be able to wind yourself up again after Thursdays win. Im not putting this one of our goalies. They were as good as the rest of our group." On Pavelec coming out of the game, Coach Maurice felt with giving up 16 shots in the first, and if the game continued that way, that was giving up too many shots for a goalie just getting back into the lineup after injury. "When the puck dropped, they were better than us." The road trip for the Jets continues Monday in Anaheim (TSN Jets, TSN 1290), and wraps up Tuesday in Phoenix (TSN Jets, TSN 1290) ' ' '
