Last night the LA Kings did the Dallas Stars a huge favor by shutting out the Phoenix Coyotes 4-0 which opens a huge door for the Star tonight on the road against the Carolina Hurricanes. The Canes are outside of the playoff hunt and are playing out the string which makes this a huge opportunity for the hot Stars to come into an opposing stadium and pick up two wins without a crowd pushing the home team to a win in search for a playoff spot even though they haven’t been truly eliminated.
That being said the Hurricanes have offensive talent on their roster and are a tough out in their own building so the Stars can’t just show up and think they are skating away with a victory. The Canes did defeat the Penguins the other night and have been led by goalie Anton Khudobin.
The Stars offense has been scorching with Ryan Garbutt the hottest of all scoring 4 times in 4 games. While Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn are the headliners it’s been all of the secondary scoring that has led to the huge scoring output and will need to be called upon in the final 7 games for the Stars to clinch a playoff spot. Here is the viewing info for tonight
Game Time: 6pm Central
TV Listings- Fox Sports Southwest, Fox Sports Carolina
