(Sports Network) - The Dallas Stars hope to complete a sweep of their three- game homestand tonight, when they welcome the Los Angeles Kings to American Airlines Center.

The Stars beat Colorado, 5-4, on Monday and then posted a 1-0 win over the Nashville Predators on Wednesday. Jeff Halpern's tally at 4:11 of the third period was the only goal of Wednesday's game.

Niklas Hagman and Patrik Stefan picked up the only other points on the night for Dallas, which has won four of its last six games.

Rookie goaltender Mike Smith had an easy night, stopping just 17 shots to post his fourth win of the season and his second career shutout.

Stefan carried into the Predators zone on the game-winner, and dished off to Hagman on the left side. Hagman's shot from the left point totally missed the net, but the rebound caromed perfectly off the back boards right to Halpern, who quickly dumped the puck into the net.

The Stars improved to 7-2-0 as the host club this season. They will begin a three-game road trip Monday evening against the Detroit Red Wings.
