Anaheim Ducks Set to Faceoff Against Dallas Stars


Dallas - The Anaheim Ducks look to rebound tonight against the division rival Dallas Stars. The Ducks are starting the first of a three game set, their second such set this  year. This is also a match-up between the two oldest players in the league (Teemu Selanne and Jaromir Jagr)

Anaheim is coming off of a 2-1 OT loss yesterday to the Columbus Blue Jackets. In order for the Ducks to keep the pressure on the conference leading Chicago Blackhawks they need to take full advantage of the points.

The Stars are coming off of a 3-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings last night. Dallas is looking to stay above .500 at home this season and finish their 5-game home-stand on a strong note.

The puck will drop at 5:30 PST this evening.
