Just one game on the NHL schedule tonight, but it has the potential to be a rough-and-tumble one. The last time the Stars and Ducks met, back on Oct. 20, Anaheim roared back with five straight goals to take a 6-3 decision.
The game that featured 50 minutes in penalties and was capped off by a spirited scrap between Ducks defenseman Francois Beauchemin and Stars captain Jamie Benn.
Who will come out on top tonight? All four of THN's game-pickers have it going the same way.
