The Dallas Stars (1-1) will begin game one of a three-game homestand at American Airlines Arena as the Phoenix Coyotes (0-1) come to town. Game time is at 6:00 p.m. Last season the Stars had a 4-2 record against the playoff bound Coyotes, who finished with the No. 6 seed in the Western Conference playoffs before losing in the quarterfinals to the Detroit Red Wings in a four game sweep.
Kari Lehtonen is expected to start in the pipes tonight, after backup Andrew Raycroft gave up 4 goals in Saturday's contest. in stopping 37 shots and giving up a meaningless goal by Nick Leddy with just 13.6 seconds remaining, Lehtonen looks to keep his mojo rolling.
The Stars traded a win and loss with the Chicago Blackhawks in a home and home on Friday and Saturday. Sheldon Souray, Alex Goligosky, and Jaime Benn have all registered points for Dallas in their first two games thus far.
