About the Stars: Dallas limps into this game 1-4-2 in its past seven outings and winless on the first two stops of a five-game road trip. The Stars have allowed 28 goals in their past seven games, including a season-high eight in Tuesday’s election night loss at Winnipeg.
About the Flames: Calgary doesn’t exactly storm into this meeting on top of its game. The Flames are 1-4 with six total goals in those games, three coming in the lone victory. Massive contracts paid last summer to Johnny Gaudreau ($40.5 million) and Sean Monahan ($44.6 million) have yielded a total of six goals, seven assists and a combined minus-21 plus/minus.
