The Dallas Stars will look to take advantage of home ice when they take on the Nashville Predators in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series tonight at American Airlines Center (8:30 p.m. CT; FS-SW, NBCSN; KTCK).
The Stars earned a split in the first two games in Nashville, winning 3-2 in Game 1 on Wednesday before falling 2-1 in overtime in Game 2 on Saturday. Now it's a best-of-five series, and the Stars want to make the most of playing at home the next two games, starting with a key Game 3.
When a best-of-seven series is tied 1-1 in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the winner of Game 3 owns an all-time series record of 212-100 (67.9%).
"We want to take advantage of the home ice opportunity that we have," said Stars captain Jamie Benn. "We love playing here; we love playing in front of our fans. It should be exciting tonight."
