Definitely a shorter preview today since you can just read yesterday's preview for most of the information. I think that revenge is a factor here. The Stars have to make sure they don't get lured into dumb penalties by a team that is looking to get back at them for a 6-1 drubbing. Usually the Stars aren't like that though. Hopefully, we will see Abbotsford being overly aggressive and therefore doing the conga line to the penalty box all night. I don't expect 6 goals again tonight, but I think the Stars have a great chance to win against a team that is reeling on the road.

Todd Ford indicated he would likely be starting tonight.

Stars injury/call up report:
Wilson (stomach strain), Krahn (lower body)
Peters (call up)

  1. Funny, I asked Ford coming off the ice after the warm-up if he'd be in the net, and he said yes...was pretty surprised to see Climie out there. Maybe a last-minute switch?
