About the Stars: This is the first game on Dallas’ three-game swing through western Canada. ... Left wing Ray Whitney (one goal, seven assists) was placed on injured reserve with a lower-body injury on Tuesday. Travis Morin was recalled from the Texas Stars to take his roster spot. ... Dallas, coming off a 5-2 home loss Saturday to the Blackhawks, is on a 2-for-29 run of power-play futility.
About the Oilers: Edmonton has the worst record in the Western Conference, thanks in large part to poor defense and goaltending. The Oilers have given up a league-high 74 goals in 19 games. ... Edmonton has lost eight of its last nine games. ... Second-year forward Nail Yakupov has openly complained about his ice time but says he wants to stay in Edmonton.
