DALLAS (Ticker) -- The Dallas Stars can extend their season-high unbeaten streak to seven games Friday night as they host the Phoenis Coyotes in a Pacific Division contest.

The Stars are 4-0-2 in their last six games and have scored 14 goals in that span. They are also unbeaten in their last five home games (3-0-2).

Captain Mike Modano has played well during this stretch, collecting two goals and six assists during a six-game points streak. He set up Brenden Morrow's power-play tally in the second period of Wednesday's 1-1 tie with the Montreal Canadiens.

The Stars are 13-2-4 when Modano registers a point this season.

Phoenix is at .500 for the sixth time this season and is 5-3-5-1 in its last 14 games. The Coyotes are opening a four-game road trip after picking up their first win at new Glendale Arena.

In Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Los Angeles, Brian Boucher made 21 saves and Ladislav Nagy scored during a nine-minute power-play.

Captain Shane Doan added a third-period tally and has six goals in his last 14 games.

The Stars lead the season series, 2-1-0. The Coyotes snapped an eight-game winless streak to the Stars with a 2-1 home win on December 3 as Sean Burke made 39 saves and Daymond Langkow collected a goal and an assist.
