#5 Western Conference
February 25th at 7:00 PM
Cedar Park Center, Cedar Park, TX

Note: I won't be able to see tonight's game live so follow @TexasStars and @TheJoshFisher for live updates.

It's the same matchup as last night once again today for the Texas Stars. Houston stays in town for a second helping of what the Stars hope will be goals against and frustratingly solid goaltending. The Stars look to extend their home winning streak to five games with two important points.

Right now, Texas is confident in their game, believing they can play with any team in the conference at home or on the road. Tyler Beskorowany said after last night's game, "We both play on the same ice. We can beat any team; we've proven it."

Beskorowany is also confident personally. Coach Pyle could very easily go with the Sudbury native again in net tonight, given his recent play. As to other line up changes, it currently looks like Philip Larsen is fine after getting a puck to the head in Dallas last night, so no callup from Texas should be needed.

Stars injury/call up report:
Larsen, Vincour, Garbutt (callup)
Sawada, Labrie, Spang, Schultz, Fortunus (injury)
