Stars try to bring momentum home vs. Capitals

On the heels of a perfect road trip, the Dallas Stars look to continue their winning ways on home ice when they host the Washington Capitals on Friday.

The Stars had struggled on the road for much of the season, yet Tuesday's 5-1 win over the New Jersey Devils gave Dallas a spotless 4-0-0 record during a four-game trek against Eastern Conference opponents.

A victory over Washington would give the Stars five straight wins overall, and six wins in their past seven home games. Friday's contest begins a six-game homestand for the Stars, whose 14-4-1 mark in Dallas is one of the NHL's best home records.
