FIVE THINGS TO WATCH:

1. The Dallas Stars and Edmonton Oilers meet for their second of four contests this season. Dallas won the first game against the Oilers 4-1, and have won six of the last seven games against them overall.

2.
Dallas has not lost a game in regulation at home against the Edmonton Oilers since Dec. 8, 2006. In 10 home games since then, the Stars have earned a 9-0-1 record outscoring them 39-22 in that span. The Stars have a four-game winning streak against them at home.

3.
American Airlines Center is gearing up for a double-header of Stars/Mavericks on Saturday. The Stars will hit the ice at 1 p.m. (CT), while the Mavericks are set to tip-off the hardwood at 8 p.m. The conversion from ice to wood takes approximately one-and-a-half to two hours and requires a crew of over 250 people to complete the process. The fastest recorded conversion at AAC took 1 hour, 21 minutes.

4.
Saturday’s game features two of the top three highest goal scoring 2007 draft picks. Jamie Benn (DAL, 129 overall), is third on the list with 55 goals while Sam Gagner (EDM, 6 overall), ranks second. Patrick Kane (CHI, 1 overall), is first with 113 goals.

5.
Dallas has scored at least three goals in five of their last six games and have not allowed a power play goal in their last four games (8/8 on PK).
