Dallas Stars get ready to defend Dallas from a wild pack of Coyotes
The Dallas Stars return home after getting four out of six points on the Pacific coast. However, they have to be ready to defend the city of Dallas from a wild pack of Arizona Coyotes Saturday night at the American Airlines Center. The Coyotes have nothing to lose so they will give the Stars everything they have tonight. Hopefully, the Stars can break the curse of the Blackout Jerseys tonight with a win. Here are the three keys to the game for the Stars against the Coyotes.
Dallas Stars vs Arizona Coyotes Preview: 3. Continue to feed Tyler Seguin
Tyler Seguin is currently on fire in the points department ever since moving to the top line while Roope Hintz has been out with an injury. In his last five games, Seguin has five goals and two assists. The Stars have got to continue to provide scoring chances tonight to give the Stars a nice early lead. If somehow Hintz returns tonight, DeBoer has a very tough choice ahead of him. Do you reunite the top line or do you let Seguin stay on the top line until he cools down?
Dallas Stars vs Arizona Coyotes Preview: 2. Stop Clayton Keller and Lawson Crouse
The Stars’ defense will have a huge task of stopping Lawson Crouse and Clayton Keller tonight. Going into the matchup tonight, Crouse leads the Coyotes in scoring with 16 goals and 11 assists. Keller is right behind him in second place with 15 goals and 23 assists. If the Stars can shut down Crouse from making any clean passes to set up his teammates, it should significantly help Dallas win tonight.
Dallas Stars vs Arizona Coyotes Preview: 1. Run the score up like we did before
I’m sure you remember earlier this season when the Stars made their first trip to play the Coyotes. The Stars had four goals in the first period alone and they would end up winning 7-2. I know that the Stars probably won’t reach that score again against the Coyotes. I just want to see the Stars get off to a quick start to the point where Jake Oettinger can relax as the goaltender tonight.
