Less than 24 hours after the St. Louis Blues and their coach were Hitchcock blocked by the L.A. Kings, our boys travel to Dallas to take on the earth-bound Stars. Dallas started the season on fire despite dropping two games to us. They then lost 5 in a row before finally beating the Oilers 4-1 on Monday.

We have seen Dallas and we know what to expect. A good defensive team that plays an aggressive forecheck. The Stars go as Lehtonen goes and we hope to see Kari go straight to the bench after giving up 5. Dallas is an excellent home team and perhaps more than 4,000 people will show up tonight now that the Stars are flush with new ownership cash and stability…until of course Tom Gaglardi takes the Stars to Canada – nyuck, nyuck.

Jonathan Quick will start. No word regarding line up changes other than the Doughty – Johnson on again, off again pairing is off again.
