Oct. 22 vs. Los Angeles Kings
The Dallas Stars touch home ice for the first time in the new season on October 22nd. We’re keeping fingers crossed that the American Airlines Center (AAC) will be packed with victory green-clad fanatics.
The Stars home ice opener is a Friday night that follows a 4-game road trip to open the season. 4 games is the most any NHL team will be on the road this season. Dallas will welcome the Kings to AAC twice this season and make a trip to Los Angeles on December 9th.
The Kings remain caught between rebuilding and a last ditch effort to send cup-winning veterans out on a playoff bid. Los Angeles cannot be taken lightly with Anze Kopitar, Drew Doughty, and Jonathan Quick on ice. Each player has grown long in the tooth, but the season is young in October and the Kings’ vets will be low mileage.
We expect nothing less than an electrifying atmosphere from the Texas hockey crowd on this night.
