Both of these teams have put together terrible starts to the season, but that was to be expected from the Ottawa Senators and not so much the Stars. The Dallas Stars are coming off an all-around performance against the Flyers as they put 4 goals in the net as well as received amazing goaltending. The Ottawa Senators don’t have much talent on their roster as their point leader only has 5 points on the season, and this could be the game Ben Bishop needed to gain some confidence. The Stars are a talented bunch, and they will return to their home ice where they should have no problem winning.
