Lather, rinse, repeat would be a nice formula for Texas against tonight. The Stars are looking to hit the All-Star break on a winning streak and can do that with a W against Chicago this evening. The Stars are in tenth place but are just four points behind the Wolves in seventh. Last night's victory put Texas in striking distance of the playoffs at the break. They could reach 8th with the win tonight.

Last night was a physical game for Texas. There's no reason to expect anything different this evening. Chicago has a lot of size, and they use it. When you combine that with the let-them-play style of officiating, it can get pretty intense out there pretty quickly.
