EDMONTON, Alberta (Ticker) -- Behind the improved play of

goaltender Marty Turco, the Dallas Stars are starting to heat

up.

Turco and the Stars will try to continue their recent trend when

they visit the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday.

Starting the last seven games, Turco has posted a 5-1-1 record

and helped Dallas climb back into the postseason picture.

After making it to the Western Conference finals last season,

the Stars sat at the bottom the conference standings not too

long ago. But Dallas has pulled within three points of the

final playoff spot in the West.

The Oilers, who are tied with the Stars - and Nashville

Predators - in the standings, are hoping to avoid a third

straight loss.

Defenseman Denis Grebeshkov recorded a goal and three assists,

but Edmonton still suffered a 6-4 loss to the Calgary Flames on

Wednesday.

Erik Cole also scored a goal and set up another for the Oilers,

who had won three contests in a row before their current slide.

Before that winning streak, they had lost three straight games.
