Game 1: BLUES at STARS
Western Conference Second Round
TV: 8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports
DALLAS -- Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff is expecting a physical series with the St. Louis Blues in the Western Conference Second Round, so veteran forward Travis Moen likely will be in the lineup for Game 1 Friday at American Airlines Center as a way to help counteract that physicality.
"He's fearless, he's been through it, he knows how to protect the puck, he knows how to play the situations," Ruff said of Moen. "He's comfortable in this environment, which is something that a lot of teams look for when they look for experienced and veteran players. We've got a guy that's got almost 80 [games of playoff experience] that has been there, he's done it and still gets up and down the ice real well."
