The Stars win last night coupled with a Tucson loss finds them in playoff position this morning. Tenuous as it may be, it's a strong showing for a team that was this close to being in last just two weeks ago. Texas goes for their season-high fifth straight win tonight against Chicago.

The Wolves will get Andrew Agozzino back in the lineup while Texas will be without two of their players this evening after last night's game. Julius Honka will be held out for precautionary reasons after hitting his head pretty hard on the end boards last night in the second period. He did not play the rest of the game. Matt Mangene will be out for at least tonight's game, if not more, following a match penalty last night that resulted in a five minute major penalty.

Stars injury/call up report:
Honka (head, day-to-day)
Mangene (suspension)
