The Dallas Stars are headed to Anaheim tonight to close out their season series against the Ducks.

As is the case every time the Dallas Stars play the Ducks, there’s a question hanging over the game: can Tyler Seguin finally get a goal against them?

The Ducks are the only team Seguin doesn’t have a goal against, and tonight is his last chance for the season to make sure no one has to discuss it ever again.

It doesn’t help that Seguin has been struggling to score all season, though certainly not for lack of trying.

Seguin leads the team in points, but he’s behind Jamie Benn and Alexander Radulov on goals. That’s not a bad thing necessarily, but his shooting percentage is 19th on the team this season.

Benn has 12 goals on 79 shots. Radulov has 9 on 58. Both of them are above a 15% shooting percentage. Seguin, on the other hand, only has 8 goals on a whopping 124 shots, giving him a 6.5% shooting percentage.

There are only two guys in the league shooting more than Seguin, and that’s Jack Eichel (10 goals, 138 shots) and Nathan MacKinnon (20 goals, 132 shots). Eichel is struggling against a low shooting percentage like Seguin, but MacKinnon is putting up a crazy amount of goals.

Hopefully, Seguin can improve on that shooting percentage tonight and finally get a goal against the Ducks.
