The Texas Stars (16-8-2-2, 36 pts, #4 Western Conference) are streaking. Having won their last five straight, they will try tonight to tie a franchise record with a sixth straight win against the 12th place San Antonio Rampage (Florida Panthers).

Texas is getting that done despite some challenges on defense due to injury issues in Dallas and Cedar Park. With Jamie Oleksiak and Cameron Gaunce in Dallas, the minor league club is expected tonight to ice only three blue liners that started the season in the AHL: Maxime Fortunus, Jyrki Jokipakka, and William Wrenn. Dallas contracted defensemen Ryan Button and Hubert Labrie are on extended visits to the AHL and will continue to be part of the plan in Cedar Park.
