A shorter preview today since Texas just played the Griffins last night.

Texas will probably face Petr Mrazek tonight and it's a 50/50 on whether Nilstorp gets a second start and Campbell goes tomorrow or vice versa.

The Stars showed solid character with last night's win and are playing very loose hockey. Reilly Smith has picked up his play along with the return of Cody Eakin and Tomas Vincour to the scoresheet help.

Depending on how other games in the league go tonight, Texas could move into playoff positioning with a win. With 20 points, the Stars are just behind 7th place Toronto and 8th place Rockford with 21 each.
