A nursery rhyme to get us started on the worst preview ever:

Twinkle, twinkle, Dallas Stars

Why have you been good so far?

Far above the Ducks so high

Like a guillotine in the sky

Twinkle, twinkle, Dallas Stars

You should be where we are

Notes on Dallas: The Stars are currently tied with San Jose for the lead in the Pacific Division; however, having played one more game than the Sharks, tied for first in the Pacific means 8th in the entire conference. (If you enjoy painful statistics, that is 14 points ahead of the Ducks.) There are some Duck Hunters on there team that will remain nameless for fear of upsetting the mugumbo. The Ducks have caught somewhat of a break by not having to face the game-stealing Kari Lehtonen tonight. Instead they'll go against his backup, Richard Bachman. Hey, and Steve Ott's still a douche.

Notes on Ducks: No Saku Koivu, again. Hopefully he'll be back in time for LA on Thursday. Captain Crunch Nate Guenin was sent back to Syracuse.
