(Sports Network) - The Dallas Stars look to continue a run of recent success in Edmonton when they resume their current road trip against the Oilers tonight at Rexall Place.

Dallas has won four in a row in Edmonton, including a 3-2 triumph in Alberta on November 3, and seven of its last 10 in this series as the visiting team. The Stars have also taken four of the last five overall meetings between the clubs.

The Stars are currently mired in a two-game losing streak, however, and came up just short against the red-hot Vancouver Canucks last night. Ryan Kesler netted the deciding goal in the sixth round of the shootout to give Vancouver a 2-1 victory at General Motors Place.

Loui Eriksson posted the only regulation goal of the night for Dallas, which failed on five of six chances during the shootout. Jussi Jokinen had the Stars' lone tally during the phase.

Marty Turco made 20 stops through the game's first 65 minutes, but was beaten by a backhander from Kesler for the clincher.

The loss dropped Dallas to 12-9-1 on the road. The Stars wrap up this three- game swing Saturday in Calgary.
