It will be the first of five meetings between the two Pacific Division rivals this season.
Both clubs will be entering the night in the midst of a winning streak.

The Stars have won three of their last four and sit four points back of first place in the Pacific.

The Ducks will have Jonas Hiller starting in goal (3-1-1; .871 save percentage and 3.54 goals against average) and he is expected to face Kari Lehtonen (5-2-1; .926 save percentage and 2.46 goals against average).
