The Stars haven't won two straight road games all season. They have yet another opportunity tonight in Colorado.

James Neal's goal with 22.2 seconds left on Friday gave the Stars a much-needed 4-3 win over Vancouver. They have won three of their last four games, but still sit in 10th place in the Western Conference. They are three points out of the final playoff spot.

To get that postseason berth, the Stars need a streak. So keeping the momentum going is crucial. Colorado has won five straight games, so beating them won't be easy.

BTW, Jere Lehtinen (neck) and Brenden Morrow (oblique) won't play in the game and did not make the trip. Marty Turco is expected to be in goal. We'll see how he responds. He played well on Friday and needs to build off it.

So do the Stars win tonight? Can they actually win consecutive road games?
