.com) - The Toronto Maple Leafs will take aim at their first five-game winning streak in nearly seven years when they visit the Phoenix Coyotes for Mondays clash at Jobing.com Arena. Toronto has recorded a season-high four straight wins on the heels of a four- game slide, but the Maple Leafs havent claimed five consecutive victories since Jan. 27-Feb. 6, 2007. The Leafs have notched four or more goals in each of their past three wins and recorded a 5-3 decision in Saturdays home test against the rival Montreal Canadiens. James van Riemsdyk scored the game-winning goal in the third period before Joffrey Lupul sealed the win with an empty-netter in the closing seconds. Lupul, Mason Raymond and Phil Kessel all posted a goal and an assist, while Cody Franson also scored for the Maple Leafs. Kessel has recorded a point in five straight games, logging three goals and seven helpers during the tear. Jonathan Bernier stopped 30 shots in the win, which helped Toronto pull within four points of the Canadiens for third place in the Atlantic Division. The top three teams in each division receive an automatic berth in the playoffs. "Obviously the magnitude of this game was huge," said Toronto forward Nazem Kadri. "For us to chase that top spot in the division is still a realistic goal for us. We knew we had to come out and play against a very good team." Toronto is currently in postseason position as it holds the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference. The Leafs made the playoffs last spring to end a club- record postseason drought of seven seasons. The Leafs are kicking off a four-game road trip tonight and are just 8-10-4 as the guest this season. Toronto has lost three straight and four of its past five tilts in Phoenix, but the Leafs have won seven of 13 overall meetings in the series. The Coyotes have won two straight heading to Mondays tilt, giving the club consecutive wins for the first time since Dec. 10-12. Phoenix hasnt won three in a row since a five-game run from Oct. 26-Nov. 5. Phoenix has notched both of its recent wins on home ice and will cap a three- game stay in the desert tonight. The Coyotes picked up a 3-2 win over New Jersey on Saturday. Martin Hanzal tallied a goal and an assist to lead the way on offense, while Mike Smith made 32 saves in the victory. Jordan Szwarz and Jeff Halpern also scored for Phoenix and Keith Yandle supplied two helpers in the Coyotes second straight win after a four-game slump. "It is a great night for me. Our line has been playing well recently. It was nice to get rewarded early and get a goal for our team," Szwarz said. Phoenix improved to 14-7-3 as the home team this season. The Coyotes will begin a three-game road trip Wednesday night in Calgary. Justin Morneau Canada Jersey

Jimmy Howard made 44 saves and Henrik Zetterberg scored two goals, leading the Detroit Red Wings to a 5-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Saturday night. Zetterberg, Joakim Andersson and Drew Miller scored in the first period goals for Detroit. Tomas Tatar added one in the second, and Zetterberg finished the scoring in the third. "When the clock struck midnight the other night to end 2013, I put everything behind me," Howard said. "I just said, Heres a new clean slate and lets start fresh, and Ive been trying to do that." In the first three months of the season, Howard had a 6-9-7 record. Hes now 1-0-1 in 2014, with only three goals allowed in 125 minutes. "Its been a while since Ive had a game like this for the guys," Howard said. "They deserve a lot of them out of me so this is going to be the first of many for me down the stretch." Dallas outshot the Red Wings 45-27, but also gave the puck away 17 times -- compared to four by the Red Wings. Dallas also went 0 for 7 on the power play. "It wasnt pretty by any means but we found a way," Howard said. "We capitalized on our chances here tonight and our captain (Zetterberg) was good tonight, too." The Stars had a 20-13 advantage on shots in the first period, but trailed 3-1. They had the games first 12 shots, but Zetterberg scored the first goal on the Red Wings first shot at 7:04. After Gustav Nyquist whiffed on a shot, Dallas goalie Dan Ellis tried to clear the puck. It went out to Zetterberg, who didnt miss his shot. "When Zetterberg got on the board, I thought we got it going," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. Zetterberg has 14 goals this season, including three goals and three assists in four games since returning from a back injury. Dallas tied it on Rich Peverleys short-handed goal with 7:13 left in the period. He shot from the top of the left faceoff circle past both Shawn Horcoffs screen and Howard. "Howard made some real good saves," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. "There was a couple that I thought we could have had better traffic in front of him. We missed the net on some. "We would play well, be down in their end and then give up the puck and theyd go down and score." Detroits Justin Abdelkader missed a penalty shot with 5:58 left, skating to the left of the net and trying tto tuck the puck behind Ellis, but the goalie smothered it with his pads.

. . Andersson put the Red Wings back ahead for good lead with a shot from the right circle over Ellis right shoulder with 1:55 to go in the first. Just 14 seconds later, Miller scored from a scramble in front. Dallas appeared to have a goal midway through the second period. Howard stopped Peverleys backhand shot but the puck came loose across the goal line after Peverley took another swipe at it. The play was ruled no goal. "It was a turning point, but at the same time, weve still got to fight through things," Peverley said. "We could have done a better job regrouping." The Red Wings took a 4-1 lead with 8:03 left in the second as Tatar split defenders at the blue line for a breakaway and his backhand went off Kari Lehtonen, who had replaced Ellis to begin the period, and into the net for an unassisted goal. "They had a lot of odd-man rushes," Horcoff said. "It wasnt the type of game we want to play. We want to be quick in transition, but we cant be giving away pucks like that. We cant be giving up quality shots. "A lot of our shots tonight were from the outside. We didnt get a lot of good second shots." The Stars had nothing to show for a period during which they had a 15-5 advantage in shots and three power plays. Zetterberg took a pass from Dan Cleary and one-timed the puck past Lehtonen from the left circle with 7:21 remaining. Dallas lost its second consecutive game, both at home, by a combined score of 11-5. NOTES: The Red Wings entered the game with the NHLs third-best road record, and improved to 13-4-3. ... Detroit C Pavel Datsyuk and D Danny DeKeyser did not dress. DeKeyser has a groin injury, but Datsyuks absence wasnt explained. He didnt practice Friday, but skated with the team Saturday morning. Babcock said he had "no idea" how Datsyuk is. ... D Alexey Marchenko, the Red Wings seventh-round draft pick in 2011, made his NHL debut. He played more than 13 minutes, drew a penalty and was plus-2. ... Dallas recalled Chris Mueller from Texas of the AHL on Saturday as insurance because four forwards -- Horcoff, Peverley, Tyler Seguin and Ray Whitney -- had been sick. The four all played, so Mueller was inactive. ... Stars D Aaron Rome left the game in the second period because of an upper-body injury. Ruff said Rome probably would miss the next week.
