DALLAS (Ticker) -- The Phoenix Coyotes surprisingly are the hottest club in the NHL.

The Coyotes gun for their seventh straight victory Tuesday when they tangle with the Dallas Stars.

Phoenix has won six straight in impressive fashion, outscoring its opponents by a 25-10 margin over that span. The Coyotes have not has a seven-game winning streak since an eight-game run from November 16-December 2, 1999.

Phoenix's latest win was a 4-2 triumph over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday.

Jeremy Roenick, the long-time Blackhawk who played his first eight-plus seasons in the Windy City, had a goal and an assist to lead Phoenix in possibly his last appearance in Chicago as an active player.

Curtis Joseph, who did not play in Sunday's win, has been hot for Phoenix, yielding just four goals in winning his last four appearances. He registered consecutive shutouts in wins over San Jose on December 30 and Carolina on January 4.

The Stars have been shaky of late, going just 1-2-1 in their last four games. Dallas concluded a three-game road trip with a 4-2 loss to the Calgary Flames on Saturday.
