As usual, back-to-back games get the shorter treatment on the gameday preview side because most of what we discussed yesterday still applies. Texas is now 6-1-0-1 against Houston and faces them again tonight in Houston. Of course, the biggest thing about tonight's game is the fact that it will be broadcast on FOX Sports Southwest for your viewing pleasure at home. I personally will be out at Contender's at the watching party.
With Brust now starting two games in a row, Houston would have to be suicidal to not start Wade Dubielewicz tonight. Also, a storyline to watch for tonight is Scott McCulloch. Houston will likely be looking to mix it up with the Stars forward who was ejected from the game last night for cross-checking in the first period. That is, if Smoochie isn't suspended.
Josh will still be doing radio, so if you're a purist, you can do the TV muted and listen to the radio thing. Hope to see you at Contender's.
