DALLAS (Ticker) -- The Dallas Stars are in a stretch in which they play seven of eight games at home.

So far they have taken advantage and aim for their fourth straight home win against the Detroit Red Wings on Monday.

Dallas has 70 points and trails first-place Anaheim by four points in the Pacific Division. The Red Wings trail Nashville by one point in the Central Division.

The Stars outlasted the Colorado Avalanche, 7-5, on Sunday. Goaltender Mike Smith was summoned after Marty Turco was pulled midway through the second period and stopped 12-of-14 shots to get the win.

Smith is 3-0-0 in his last three appearances and has stopped 59-of-61 shots. Jeff Halpern led the Stars with a goal and two assists. Halpern has six points in his last five games after getting just one in his previous 10 contests.

The Red Wings suffered an embarrassing 6-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday. The Flyers entered as the last-place club in the league, but pulled away from Detroit with five third-period goals.

Tomas Holmstrom scored the lone Detroit goal while goaltender Joey MacDonald stopped just 27-of-33 shots. Holmstrom has six goals in his last eight games.
