The Dallas Stars are hot right now, winning their last three games and turning around their road record.

Tonight, the Dallas Stars will head into Boston and try to keep things rolling as Anton Khudobin plays his former team for the first time since signing with the Stars.

Khudobin will get the start tonight as Jim Montgomery said last week, meaning Ben Bishop will get the start tomorrow night against the Blue Jackets.

Of course, Khudobin isn’t the only one playing his former team.

Tyler Seguin has a history of some good games against the team that drafted him, with 5 goals and 9 points in 10 games against them. He even had a hat trick against the Bruins in Boston a few years ago. If he wants to repeat that tonight, Stars fans would love it.

It looks like both Marc Methot and Brett Ritchie will be out tonight, meaning Justin Dowling and Dillon Heatherington will be in the line-up. Ritchie is apparently feeling sick, and may potentially play, but he’s considered doubtful. The defense has been rocked by injuries, so Methot missing another game is certainly cause for concern at this point.

The last game ended in an overtime, the first one for the Stars this season. Tonight is the first half of a back-to-back, so they need to get in, get two points in regulation, and get out. Better to win in overtime than to lose, but the Stars need to stay healthy and be ready to play again tomorrow.
