Dallas is 23-4-6-1 at home this season and is tied with Detroit for the most home wins in the Western Conference. The Stars are 5-2-3 at home since the All-Star break and are coming off Friday’s 2-1 setback to Nashville.
Dallas has not had consecutive home losses since last March 8-10.
Defenseman Derian Hatcher netted Dallas’ lone goal with a shorthanded tally. But the Stars, who own a 6-7-5-1 record when trailing after two periods, couldn’t get the equalizer, and lost for the third time in five games.
Right wing Scott Young missed Friday’s game with a hip flexor and is listed as questionable for Sunday.
San Jose remained 13 points in back of Edmonton for the Western Conference’s final playoff spot after Saturday’s 6-4 setback in Phoenix.
Coming off a dramatic 4-3 overtime win over Montreal on Thursday, the Sharks built a 3-0 lead on first-period tallies by Niko Dimitrakos, Mike Ricci and rookie Jonathan Cheechoo, but allowed five straight goals.
Defenseman Jim Fahey had three assists and Ricci ended a 21-game scoring slump for San Jose, which has dropped nine of its last 11 road games.
The Stars lead the season series 3-0.
