About the Stars

The Stars (12-11-2) opened a four-game homestand with a 4-0 loss to Nashville on Tuesday. The Stars, who are 5-5-1 at home this season, have dropped four of their last six games at American Airlines Center.

“You have to take care of your games at home,” said Stars forward Ray Whitney. “It’s a tough schedule right now and everybody’s going to have a big homestand at some point with the amount of games we’re playing. And you’re not going to make the playoffs if you don’t play better at home and use that to your advantage.

“Certainly how we come out is going to be a factor in the rest of this homestand and the rest of this month. We have a pretty good month to try to get some momentum, and we can’t take that lightly. We’re certainly not going to be handed games, so we’re going to have to earn what we get.”

The Stars play eight of their next ten games at American Airlines Center.

Injuries: C Jamie Benn (wrist) is doubtful. LW Brenden Morrow (groin) is questionable. D Aaron Rome (foot) is out.
