Ducks, Stars meet in important Pacific Division battle

Mar 23, 2007 - 4:50 PM Dallas (44-24-5) at Anaheim 43-19-12) 10:00 pm EDT

ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- The Anaheim Ducks can build on their cushion against a familiar foe.

The Ducks aim to increase their lead in the Pacific Division when they host the rival Dallas Stars on Friday.

Anaheim has a two-point lead over San Jose (46-25-4) and owns a five-point advantage over Dallas. It trails Detroit (45-19-10) by two points and first-place Nashville (47-21-7) by three in the race for the top seed in the Western Conference.

The Ducks squandered two points in a 2-1 loss to the lowly Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday. Travis Moen scored the lone goal while Ilya Bryzgalov made 19 saves for Anaheim, which lost for just the third time in nine contests.

The Stars have kept the pressure on the Ducks with six wins in seven games. They defeated Los Angeles, 4-2, on Wednesday for their second straight victory.

Dallas center Mike Modano had an assist and extended his points streak to a season-high six games.

The Stars are 3-3-0 against the Ducks this season and have won the last two meetings, including a 4-1 home triumph on February 23.
