Postseason hopes dashed, Stars set for two vs. Blackhawks

The Dallas Stars went to Chicago thinking positive thoughts about keeping alive their faint postseason hopes.

Instead, the challenge is to keep their focus on their final two games, set for Sunday and Monday against the Blackhawks, knowing those hopes are gone.

The Stars had staved off playoff elimination in the Central Division on Friday night with a strong 5-2 win over Tampa Bay to pull within two points of the fourth-place Nashville Predators.
