FIVE THINGS TO WATCH:

1. The Dallas Stars and San Jose Sharks will meet for the second of six meetings this season on Thursday night, with the Stars holding a record of 0-1-0. Dallas is 10-5-1 in the last 16 contests in San Jose, and has had a losing record in one season in the Bay Area just once since the 1999-00 season.

2.  The Stars are just one of two NHL teams that have not allowed a shorthanded goal through the first 26 games of the season. Through 26 contests of the 2010-11 season, Dallas had allowed three goals while down a man. The last time the Stars allowed a shorthanded goal was April 8, 2011 at Colorado (Yip).

3. Thursday’s game against the Sharks marks the beginning of the Stars’ longest road trip of the season, which also includes stops at Staples Center (Kings), Madison Square Garden (Rangers), Nassau Coliseum (Islanders), and Prudential Center (Devils). Dallas had a record of 1-3-1 in the only road swing that spanned at least five games last season.

4. Three Stars players had a higher point total against the Sharks more than any other NHL team last season. Jamie Benn had seven points (3 goals, 4 assists), Stephane Robidas had five points (5 assists), and Steve Ott had four points (4 assists) in six games against the Sharks last season.

5. The Stars have allowed the most shots per game (32.7) in the NHL, while the Sharks are tied for the league-lead in shots per game (Detroit), averaging 34.5 shots on net per game.

LOUI ERIKSSON has more assists (15) in his career against the Sharks than any other Pacific Division opponent.
