The Dallas Stars will have to manage this week without winger Alexander Radulov. Radulov has 11 points in seven games but is dealing with a lower-body injury. Check with Daily Faceoff for updated line combinations.

Despite a +12 goal differential, the Colorado Avalanche have lost three overtime games leading to a 7-4-3 record. Mikko Rantanen has 24 points (19 assists) while Nathan MacKinnon has 11 goals and 10 assists.
