About the Stars: This game begins a three-game road trip and is the first of two against the Islanders (NY comes to Dallas on Sunday). ... It’s the teams’ first meeting since Dec. 15, 2011. ... Dallas was thumped 5-1 by Detroit on Saturday, and has allowed 11 goals combined in consecutive losses. ... “I think our defense kind of hit the wall the past couple of games,” Stars coach Lindy Ruff said, according to stars.nhl.com. ... However, defenseman Sergei Gonchar (concussion symptoms) is expected to return and D Trevor Daley (ankle sprain) is possible. ... D Aaron Rome (upper body injury) “will probably be out this week,” Ruff said. ... F Chris Mueller was sent back to Texas in the AHL.

About the Islanders: The Isles have lost nine of their past 10 at home, but the win was a 3-2 overtime decision over Chicago on Thursday. New York lost 3-2 at home to Carolina on Saturday.
