About the Stars: Winners of two in a row, they are on the second stop of a season-long, five-game road trip that ends Sunday at Florida. ... These teams met in the season’s second game, Oct. 5, with the Stars winning 2-1 for coach Lindy Ruff’s first win with his new team. Kari Lehtonen made 25 saves, including a stop on Mikhail Grabovski’s wide-open 10-footer at the final buzzer. ... Defenseman Patrik Nemeth was recalled from the Texas Stars on Monday. The 22-year-old Swede, Dallas’ second-round pick in 2010, will make his NHL debut against Washington.

About the Capitals: Lost 4-3 in a shootout at Nashville on Sunday and have lost three consecutive games. ... Like the Stars, the Caps are one point out of the final playoff spot in their conference. ... Washington has allowed an NHL-worst 30 power-play goals at home, including two by Boston on Saturday. ... Captain Alex Ovechkin hasn’t scored an even-strength goal in the past 15 games. ... Winger Troy Brouwer has a career-high 23 goals, including two in the loss to Nashville. Twelve of his goals have been on the power play.
