The Stars will look to jump out to a 3-1 start on the season tonight against the St. Louis Blues, the first of four games with the club this season. Both teams are coming off of Monday night wins - St. Louis a 5-2 win over Calgary, where the Blues outshot the Flames 35-17, and Dallas a 2-1 shootout win over Phoenix.
Defending Big D reports that the Stars will return defenseman Nicklas Grossman from a strained groin suffered two weeks ago. Also returning for Dallas will be left wing Krys Barch. Defenseman Adam Pardy is still out, recovering from a cracked rib he suffered against the Blues during the preseason.
Stars winger Loui Eriksson has had plenty of previous success against St. Louis, including two game winning goals against the Blues last season, and 13 points in 16 total games against.
