The Dallas Stars return to American Airlines Center tonight. Their preseason contest with the Florida Panthers will be a good opportunity to see how the team is tweaking its system. And if the past is prologue, it could also be a great time to see if the power play is as powerful as it stacks up to be.
The Dallas Morning News’ Matthew DeFranks has kept a close eye on the Stars throughout the preseason to date, and he writes that head coach Rick Bowness is rolling a pair of power-play units with “more skill than Dallas has had in recent years”:
On the first unit, John Klingberg manned the point, Alexander Radulov the net, Joe Pavelski the slot and Jason Robertson and Roope Hintz the right and left flanks, respectively.
