by Dallas Stars Staff / Dallas Stars

Dallas Stars (30-26-7) @ Los Angeles Kings (26-28-9)
9:30PM - Staples Center
Television - Fox Sports Southwest
Radio-News/Talk 820 WBAP

1.)  The Kings and Stars meet for the fourth time this season tonight, Dallas’ second trip to LA this season. The Kings won in a shootout, 3-2, on Nov. 11 at Staples Center. Dallas won the last game between the two – a shootout win at American Airlines Center, 3-2. Dallas is 95-62-36, all-time, vs. the Kings. Tonight is the first of three meetings this month between the two teams.
2.)  Mike Modano has appeared in 84 career games vs. the Kings, scoring 37 goals and 47 assists for 84 points. Modano scored his 90th career game-winning goal on Tuesday in San Jose – a Stars record (one of many he owns). Dallas’ number 9 ranks sixth in game-winning goals among active players and is moving up the charts (Brendan Shanahan leads with 109, followed by Mats Sundin with 94, Sergei Fedorov with 92, Jeremy Roenick with 92, and Teemu Selanne with 91).

3.)  James Neal scored two goals on Tuesday at San Jose, becoming the first Dallas Stars rookie to break the 20-goal plateau since the team came to North Texas in 1993. Neal Broten holds the franchise record for rookie goals with 38 in 1981-82.
4.)  Dallas won its 30th game of the season Tuesday at San Jose. Did you know that the Stars have now won at least 30 games in 13 of the 15 seasons that have been played in Dallas, including each of the last 12? The Stars have also reached 40 wins in each of the last five seasons (and 10 of the last 11 campaigns). Dallas needs 10 wins in its last 19 games to reach that milestone again.
5.)  Ones to watch for: Drew Doughty, the second overall pick in last summer’s draft, leads all rookies (and the Kings) with 23:48 average time-on-ice. He has played at least 20 minutes in 57 of 61 games this season. Doughty has 19 points this season (4-15-19), tied for second most among rookie blue-liners. He’s first among rookies with 89 blocked shots.
Jonathan Quick, who has started 17 of the last 19 games, ranks third among rookie goaltenders with a 2.64 GAA, 13 wins, three shutouts and a .909 save percentage. In February Quick was 6-3-1 with a 2.43 goals-against average and .916 save percentage.
