FOX Sports Southwest | KTCK 1310 AM – 96.7 FM

The Dallas Stars look to shake off a bad loss on Tuesday at home with a win tonight on the road against the St. Louis Blues.

Check out Taylor's preview for all the details. TL;DR: Ben Bishop out, Kari Lehtonen in, Julius Honka healthy-scratched. Mike McKenna has been called up from the Texas Stars as the backup in goal.

The likely Stars line-up:

Jamie Benn - Tyler Seguin - Alexander Radulov
Mattias Janmark - Jason Spezza - Devin Shore
Remi Elie - Radek Faksa - Tyler Pitlick
Curtis McKenzie - Gemel Smith - Brett Ritchie

Esa Lindell - John Klingberg
Dan Hamhuis - Greg Pateryn
Jamie Oleksiak - Stephen Johns

As for the Blues, keep an eye on Paul Stastny (11 points in his past seven games against the Stars), Alex Pietrangelo (seven points in the past five) and Jaden Schwartz (11 in the past eight). Jake Allen is in net tonight for the Blues; he is 4-0-0 in his last four starts against the Victory Green Gang.

Prospective lines and pairs:

Vladimir Sobotka - Paul Stastny - Vladimir Tarasenko
Jaden Schwartz - Brayden Schenn - Alexander Steen
Magnus Paajarvi - Patrik Berglund - Dmitrij Jaskin
Scottie Upshall - Kyle Brodziak - Chris Thorburn

Jay Bouwmeester - Alex Pietrangelo
Joel Edmundson - Colton Parayko
Carl Gunnarsson - Robert Bortuzzo
