Two words. Joe Pavelski. After the embarrassing loss at home against the Avalanche, the veteran decided to take matters into his own hands as he led the Stars to the revenge win against the No. 1 team in the league. Pavelski delivered two goals and two assists for the win – his fourth game of at least four points to notch a single-season career high. The performance was crucial for Dallas, but more importantly, it was huge for Pavelski himself as the sensational showing took him out of a personal slump. Having witnessed how the veteran carried the load for the team, the rest of the Stars are inspired to emulate the discipline of the 37-year-old. Against the Blackhawks on Friday, Dallas is looking to follow up the impressive performance they had on Tuesday. Led by Pavelski, the Stars could be in for another huge victory.
Players to watch: J. Pavelski C (G 21, A 31, PTS 52), J. Robertson LW (G 21, A 25, PTS 46), R. Hintz LW (G 21, A 20, PTS 41).
The Blackhawks continue to struggle in establishing a consistent flow in their game. Since returning from the All-Star break, Chicago found itself alternating wins and losses. The trend has kept the Blackhawks from gaining traction as they remain at the second to the last spot in the Central Division with 43 points in 50 games. The team began its six-game home stand on Thursday, resulting in a 7-4 loss to the Blue Jackets. The struggles on the defensive end have been obvious for Chicago. If they want to avoid another home loss for the second straight game at the United Center, the Blackhawks will have to address the issues they have on defense.
Players to watch: P. Kane RW (G 12, A 34, PTS 46), A. DeBrincat LW (G 28, A 12, PTS 40), S. Jones D (G 3, A 27, PTS 30).
