Texas is still doing "OK" percentage wise on the season for points. If they keep up the current pace, they'll make it to 97 points and make the playoffs. However, it certainly doesn't feel like a team that is going to finish with 97 points. The Stars need to jump on the second night of this back-to-back to get two points and get some swagger back. Lake Erie really pushed their advantage last night, going up 4-0 early and the Stars need to make sure that doesn't bleed over to tonight.

Val Nichushkin still in for Texas. It will likely be his last game, according to reports from Dallas.
