(Sports Network) - The Dallas Stars aim for a third consecutive victory tonight, when they visit the Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center.

The Stars split a four-game homestand by winning the final two tests in the stretch. They beat the Los Angeles Kings on Monday before downing the Calgary Flames on Wednesday.

Dallas notched a 4-2 victory over the Flames behind a two-goal performance from Jere Lehtinen at American Airlines Arena

Joel Lundqvist and Stu Barnes also scored for Dallas. Marty Turco was credited with an assist and made 18 saves for his 23rd win of the season.

The Wild, meanwhile, have taken four of their last five contests and are coming off Friday's shutout in Chicago. Manny Fernandez stopped all 24 shots he faced for his second shutout of the year and 13th of his career.

Marian Gaborik scored a pair of goals to lead Minnesota's attack and has registered a point in five straight games. Gaborik has played in seven games since returning from a groin injury that sidelined him for 2 1/2 months. The Czech winger has 15 points (11 goals, 4 assists) in 14 games this season.
