Complete Coverage >

The Ottawa Senators are coming off a big win against the Los Angeles Kings, while the Dallas Stars are coming off a big loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. One team has momentum, the other doesn't want to be embarrassed in Ontario for a second time.

The Ottawa Senators line-up will stay the same, with Pascal Leclaire getting the start in net and David Hale taking Erik Karlsson's spot on the blue-line.

Somte notes:

  • Last meeting: Saturday, March 20, 2010 in Dallas. Stars beat Senators 5-4. Pascal Leclaire allows 5 goals in 44:33 and is pulled. He slams the gate to the bench angrily before running through the dressing room hallway. Jason Spezza records hat trick and adds an assist for a 4-point night.

  • Post-lockout record vs. Dallas: 2-2-0

  • Pascal Leclaire career vs. Dallas: 2-2-2, 3.69 GAA, .870 SV%, 0 SO

  • Andrew Raycroft career vs. Ottawa: 8-9-1-3 (a tie!), 3.15 GAA, .896 SV%, 1 SO

  • Nick Foligno: 0 goals this season, 2 in 2010 over a span of 49 regular season and 6 playoff games.

  • David Hale: Will the Senators' lucky rabbit foot help win another game? The Senators are 8-3-0 with Hale in the lineup.

  • Dallas has the second-worst penalty kill in the NHL, tied with Carolina at 75.3%.

  • Did you know? The Stars have not scored an empty net goal this season.

  • Finally, while Ottawa's lineup remains the same, Dallas has recalled Swiss defenceman Severin Blindenbacher to take the place of injured Mark Fistric. Tonight will be the fantastically-named Blindenbacher's first NHL game.
