Dallas has hit a mid-season slump, losing six of nine. Road travel is the problem, playing their seventh road contest in the last 12 games tonight. Dallas opened 11-2-1 on the road but has since gone 1-4-3 since while allowing an average of 3.9 goals. The Stars have yielded six goals in their last two road games. They come off a 2-1 home loss to Minnesota, part of a 2-5 run. Dallas has gone 2 for 34 on the power play in its last 13 road games. Goalie Antti Niemi has lost his past four road games and has an .857 save percentage in the last three, while fellow net-minder Kari Lehtonen is 0-1-0 with a 7.67 goals-against average in three road starts. The Ducks are off a 4-1 win over Ottawa on this season-high eight-game homestand. Grab the home team in this one and take Anaheim.
