Last 10: Dallas 5-5-0; Vancouver 8-1-1

"It seems everybody is stepping up left and right, and obviously we know we are getting tremendous goaltending every night and it's winning us a lot of games right now," forward Jannik Hansen said.

Dallas is coming off a demoralizing 7-4 loss to the Calgary Flames that ended a four-game winning streak which pushed them into the top eight in the West.
