Dallas Stars VS Anaheim Ducks Game Preview

The Dallas Stars and Anaheim Ducks play on Friday.  The Stars have first place with 10 points.  The Stars next 2 games are against the Anaheim Ducks who have 8 points and the Los Angeles Kings who have 9 points.  There are 3 keys to the game.

Key #1 Keep Anaheim’s first line in check

The Ducks have a very dangerous first line.  The first line forwards consist of Bobby Ryan and Corey Perry playing the wing with Ryan Getzlaf at center.  Offensive defenders like Lubomir Visnosky.  Just in general Dallas has to keep Anaheim in check.

Key #2 Shoot Away from Cam Fowler

The Ducks best defensive defender may be Cam Fowler.  Fowler can also be utilized as an offensive defender.  The Stars 2nd line will want to keep the puck away from Cam Fowler.

Key #3 Get back to Out Hitting Opponents

Dallas outhit their first 4 opponents.  In the last 2 games Columbus managed to outhit the Stars.  The Stars have 2 tough opponents coming up so they need to get back to being the more aggressive team if they want to take the Pacific Division in 2011.
