The San Jose Sharks look to make it three in a row tonight as they hit the road for their second bout against the Dallas Stars.
Team Teal is aiming to get a winning streak underway after back-to-back victories against the Canadiens and the Hurricanes respectively. Martin Jones will get a third consecutive start after stopping 40 of 41 shots against Carolina on Wednesday evening.
The Stars are coming in hot as well, having won their last three contests. Tyler Seguin, who scored on a breakaway the last time the Sharks visited Dallas, leads the team with 26 points (eight goals, 18 assists) on the season.
This is the second of three meetings between the Sharks and the Stars this season. In their last meeting, the teams exchanged chances in a fast-paced bout before Dallas notched a 4-3 victory.
