Notes: The St. Louis Blues are 6-2-1 on the road so far this season. Among their six road wins is a 4-3 victory at Dallas on Jan. 26. David Perron found the back of the Stars' net twice in that win. Sunday's game marks the start of a five-game road trip for St. Louis. In Friday's 4-2 comeback win against the Edmonton Oilers, coach Ken Hitchcock plugged rookie Jaden Schwartz into his top line alongside T.J. Oshie and David Backes and it paid dividends as Schwartz had a goal and an assist in the victory. Brian Elliott gets the nod in goal against the Stars on Sunday in what will be his first start since Feb. 11 against the Los Angeles Kings. Elliott is winless in his previous five games (0-4-1).
Notes: After a disappointing 5-1 loss Thursday to the Edmonton Oilers at American Airlines Center, a setback Stars coach Glen Gulutzan called "a stinker," the Stars look to salvage the final game of a quick two-game homestand Sunday. Stars center Jamie Benn was fined $10,000 but was not suspended for a cross-check to the head of Edmonton's Ryan Jones late in Thursday's loss. Bean earned a five-minute major for that play as well as a game misconduct. Gulutzan shuffled his lines in practice Saturday, moving Loui Eriksson up from the second line and newcomer Erik Cole, acquired in a trade with the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday, from the third line to the second line, with captain Brenden Morrow dropping from the second to the third line.
