From the game preview...

The Dallas Stars, winners of six straight away from the American Airlines Center, have things figured out on the road.

At home- Not yet.

The AAC crowd has experienced more losses than wins in the early going (3-2-2) and the power play has yet to connect here in Dallas. A road-heavy stretch of schedule having been weathered, it's time for Lindy Ruff's bunch to carry that momentum into some holiday home cooking if they're to keep pace in a nearly impossible Western Conference race.

The Rangers are coming off a 2-1 home loss to the Boston Bruins and have lost three of four overall. They've failed to score at even strength in three straight games but got forward Rick Nash back in the lineup for the first time since he suffered a concussion against San Jose on October 8th.

From Stars PR: "The Stars return home for their first of two contests scheduled this season against the New York Rangers. Dallas is 4-1-1 in its last six tilts against the Rangers, and hasn't lost at home in regulation to New York since Dec. 14, 2006."
