The Dallas Stars will be at something less than full strength when they visit St. Louis for one of six games on Monday's NHL schedule.
Not only will the Stars be playing at one of the NHL's toughest arenas for visitors -- the Blues are 18-3-3 after Saturday's 3-2 shootout win against Minnesota -- they'll be without their top two centers, Mike Ribeiro is expected to sit out his fourth straight game with a knee injury, and leading scorer Jamie Benn is out after undergoing an appendectomy on Sunday.
Fans in the United States can see the game on the NBC Sports Network, beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET. Canadian viewers can tune in on TSN2.
