Bill Meltzer: Stars Gameday: 12/4/14 @ DET


Looking to end their three-game road trip on a positive note and halt a three-game losing skid, the Dallas Stars (9-11-5) are in Motown tonight to take on the Detroit Red Wings (14-6-5). Game time is 6:30 p.m. CST. The game will be televised on Fox Sports Southwest.

This is the first of two meetings this season between the teams.

The clubs split two games last season.

The Stars enter this game coming off a 5-3 loss in Toronto on Tuesday. Detroit dropped a 4-3 home decision to Florida on Tuesday,which snapped a four-game Detroit winning streak.

On the Dallas injury front, Valeri Nichushkin (hip surgery) is out until the stretch drive, while Patrik Nemeth (forearm laceration from a skate cut) is lost for the season. For Detroit, Justin Abdelkader (shoulder) is doubtful while Jonas Gustavsson (shoulder) is out.
