STARS (9-8-6) at RED WINGS (10-10-2)
7:30 p.m. ET; FS-SW, FS-D, NHL.TV
Stars team scope
The Dallas Stars make their final regular-season visit to Joe Louis Arena, following their 4-3 overtime loss against the St. Louis Blues on Monday. Dallas is 1-6 in overtime games this season. "We got a point, and that's a positive, but overtime is killing us right now," Stars captain Jamie Benn said Tuesday. Goaltender Antti Niemi is 6-1-2 with a .940 save percentage in his past nine games against the Detroit Red Wings, but because he played Monday in St. Louis, Kari Lehtonen is likely to start. Lehtonen is 4-6-3 with a 3.38 goals-against average and .884 save percentage this season. Defensemen Dan Hamhuis and Stephen Johns were healthy scratches at St. Louis, and could move back into the lineup. The Stars are 23-41-5 all-time at Detroit.
Red Wings team scope
Red Wings forward Tomas Jurco, who has not played this season because of a back injury, will be in the lineup Tuesday. "I'm excited, because it has been way too long since I've been out there," Jurco said. "I just want to create some speed and make plays." Defenseman Brendan Smith (lower body) and forward Tyler Bertuzzi (ankle) each were placed on injured reserve after Detroit's 2-1 loss against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday, each is expected to miss about four weeks. "I can't take any time to worry about how many players we have out right now," coach Jeff Blashill said. "I have to focus on winning games with the 20 guys we have in the lineup."
