Welcome to the Cedar Park Center, where the Texas Stars are hosting the Oklahoma City Barons this evening.
Like we did on Saturday, the live-blog this week will include a series of Tweets below from media members in attendance (and the Stars official account). In addition to the twitter feed, major events and other important news will appear in the body of this post.
Oh and to all of our Jewish readers, happy Hanukkah.
Cristopher Nilstorp is starting in goal tonight. He missed both games this past weekend with an injury, he’s looking for a bit of a bounce back game after getting pulled in in his last start.
Jason Labarbera is starting for Oklahoma City. He was in the NHL to start the year but got send down once Ilya Bryzgalov was signed by Edmonton, this is his first AHL start of the season.
Stars lines tonight:
Curtis McKenzie-Travis Morin-Colton Sceviour
Brendan Ranford-Justin Dowlig-Mike Hedden
Scott Glennie-Chris Mueller-Brett Ritchie
Francis Wathier-Toby Petersen-Taylor Peters
Maxime Fortunus-Patrik Nemeth
