The Stars lost their third-straight contest last night. Plus, Dave Strader will be calling the game on Saturday, and what to do about Lindy Ruff.

NHL: Dallas Stars at Minnesota Wild Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

The Stars lost their third-straight game last night, falling to the Wild 3-1. If you’d like to relive the evening, you can check out Sean Shapiro’s recap here.

In much, much happier news, Dave Strader is returning to call five home games, starting with the Stars’ tilt against the Lightning tomorrow. Mike Heika talked with Strader about what returning to the booth during his fight with cancer means.

The native of Glens Falls, N.Y. has been receiving treatment in his hometown, so he's been away from Dallas and the day-to-day chatter of the Stars. That's what he misses most, he said.

"I know the game is going to be exciting, but I'm looking forward mostly to going to the morning skate, hanging out with the players, laughing at Razor's jokes," Strader said of broadcast partner Daryl Reaugh. "You really appreciate that when it's not there."
