(Sports Network) - The Colorado Avalanche will shoot for their first three- game winning streak of the season tonight when they battle the Dallas Stars at the American Airlines Center.

The Avalanche have won back-to-back games in Columbus and Minnesota to begin a three-game road trip. Colorado is 5-3-1 away from Denver this season.

Colorado's latest triumph came Saturday evening in St. Paul as Joe Sakic's first career shootout goal lifted the team to a 2-1 victory over the Wild at Xcel Energy Center.

Sakic also tallied a goal in regulation and Peter Budaj stopped 28 shots and two of three shooters for the Avalanche, who have won two straight on the heels of a four-game skid. They won 3-0 at Columbus on Friday.

The Stars will try to rebound from Saturday's loss at Carolina. Eric Staal recorded his third-career hat trick, with the final tally coming at the end of a wild third period, as the Hurricanes hung on to beat Dallas, 5-4, at the RBC Center.

Jussi Jokinen, Patrik Stefan, Jeff Halpern and Jaroslav Modry all tallied for the Stars, who were coming off a 5-3 win in Atlanta. Marty Turco stopped 20- of-24 shots in defeat.
