H-E-B Center at Cedar Park, Cedar Park, TX
UPDATE: Jason Dickinson has been reassigned to Texas. With Dallas on a road trip, there is no guarantee he will arrive in time for the game tonight.
Despite yesterday's loss to the Grand Rapids Griffins, the San Antonio Rampage are still flying high. Spencer Martin (6-2-1, .920, 2.39) is the reigning AHL player of the week and new addition Vladislav Kamenev (3-9=12 in 14 GP with MIL and SA) is already on a point-per-game pace with the Rampage.
It's tough to read any trendlines in this recent stretch for the Rampage. Both losses against the Griffins were high-scoring for the opponents. However, San Antonio beat Rockford 6-0, so scoring isn't a problem for them.
One trendline that is tough for this series is the current record. Texas hasn't won a game yet in three tries. It's an anomaly in the overall series, which the Stars lead by nearly a 2-to-1 margin (58-27-5-11). If anything, Texas should be happy to be at home against the Rampage, where they hold a 33-11-2-6 all-time advantage.

Also, watch to see if Denis Gurianov is back in the lineup. The team was tight-lipped on his absence, noting that it was neither an injury nor related to his play on the ice.
