The Penguins have lost the first two games of this road trip after winning their first two away games this season. The Stars, meanwhile, have won three games in a row since losing to the Penguins, including a 2-1 victory against Anaheim Thursday. They are 2-2-1 at American Airlines Arena.
The Penguins are scheduled to hold a game-day skate at 12:30 p.m. Eastern, although it's possible that it will be cancelled or made optional. The Stars' game-day skate is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m Eastern, but also is a candidate to be made optional.
