Bishop will start Friday vs. the Sharks.

Bishop stopped 24 of 25 shots in the Stars win in Vancouver last Saturday. The Stars gave him a few extra days off by giving Anton Khudobin a start on Monday. In Bishop’s last four games, the Stars netminder has made 96 saves on 100 shots (.960 SV%) while going 3-0-0 in the process. Tonight he faces an underperforming Sharks team that is 5-7-3 on the road this season.

Hanzal (back) has been cleared to make his season debut; could play Friday.

Hanzal has missed the first 28 games of the season but could play in the Stars next game on Friday. Hanzal has been sidelined since undergoing back surgery last March. The 31-year-old centre has always had a tough time with injury but had a difficult time offensively in his first year in Dallas too—registering just 10 points (5G / 5A) in 38 games.

Khudobin will start against the Flames on Wednesday.

Khudobin stopped 30 of 31 shots in the Stars 1-0 loss in Edmonton last night. Khudobin was great but it wasn’t enough to walk away with the win. With Ben Bishop still out, Khudobin will start for the second straight night but draws a tough matchup in Calgary. The Flames have won four of their last five and are eighth in the NHL in goals (3.38 GF/pg).

Khudobin will start Tuesday in Edmonton.

Khudobin allowed three goals on 36 shots in the Stars loss in Colorado on Saturday. With Ben Bishop still out, Khudobin will make his fourth consecutive start on Tuesday. His previous three outings have not gone well, as Khudobin has gone 1-2-0 with a 4.89 GAA and .859 SV%. With his recent struggles and a meeting with Connor McDavid, Khudobin is best to be left on the bench.

Bishop (lower-body) returned to the ice on Monday.

Bishop has missed the last three games with a lower-body injury, but his return to the ice on Monday is a good sign that Bishop could be back this week. The Stars have a back-to-back on Tuesday/Wednesday, so a return on Wednesday would be ideal, so Anton Khudobin doesn’t have to start two nights in a row.

Khudobin will start Saturday in Colorado.

Khudobin allowed four goals on 33 shots in the Stars win over the Senators on Friday. With Ben Bishop still out, Khudobin will start his third straight game. He has struggled in the previous two, allowing a combined nine goals on 49 shots (.816 SV%). You add in a matchup vs. an Avalanche team that is first in goal-scoring (3.77 GF/pg) and you should leave Khudobin on the bench.
