DALLAS (Ticker) -- Coming off its most lopsided loss, the

Phoenix Coyotes will look to salvage the final game of a

three-game road trip Wednesday.

The Coyotes go for just their second win in their last eight

contests away from home when they take on the Dallas Stars.

Phoenix was routed, 7-1, on Sunday by the Chicago Blackhawks.

Ilya Bryzgalov allowed all seven goals before the midway point

of the second period as the Coyotes allowed the most goals in a

single game this season.

Enver Lisin had the only goal for Phoenix, which may get a

much-needed boost with the return of Olli Jokinen. The center

is expected to be in action after missing the last six games

with a shoulder injury.

Dallas returns to work after its first win after regulation.

The Stars had lost two games in overtime and another pair in the

shootout before registering a victory in the bonus format

against Colorado on Friday.

Marty Turco allowed the game-tying goal with 56 seconds left to

send the game into overtime and surrendered a goal in the first

round of the shootout, but Turco stopped the next three

attempts.

Mike Ribeiro knotted the shootout, 1-1, and Mike Madono tallied

the game-winner for the Stars, who beat the Coyotes, 3-2, on

Saturday.
