Scouting the Stars

Tonight’s game is the first of six meetings this season between the Kings and Dallas Stars. The Kings went 4-1-1 against the Stars last season, but as noted earlier, this has the looks of a very different Dallas team under first-year coach Glen Gulutzan, as the Stars are off to a 6-1-0 start, including consecutive road victories over Columbus and Anaheim. Here’s how the Kings and Stars are expected to line up tonight — with some question remaining as to who exactly Dallas’ Adam Pardy will replace on defense — followed by the Stars’ full roster…

KINGS LINEUP
Gagne-Kopitar-Williams
