Flyers go for sixth straight win, host Stars

(TSX / STATS) -- PHILADELPHIA -- Only five teams in NHL history have ever followed a winless streak of 10 or more games with five consecutive wins. The Philadelphia Flyers, who became the latest team to achieve the feat Thursday night with a 2-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres, might be heartened to know that the other four teams reached the playoffs in the same season.

In fact, the 1966-67 Toronto Maple Leafs went on to win the Stanley Cup.

On Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center, the Flyers (13-11-7) will try to make it six in a row when the Dallas Stars (18-14-1) make their only visit. The Stars are coming off Friday night's 5-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils, their third stop of a four-game road trip that ends in Philadelphia.
