Bishop will start Saturday in Philadelphia.
Bishop allowed three goals on 35 shots in the Stars loss in Columbus on Wednesday. After a dominant 2018-19 campaign, Bishop has struggled to start the year, posting 2.84 GAA and .899 SV% in six starts (1-4-1). Most of his struggles have come on the road, where he’s 1-3-0 with a 3.30 GAA and .891 SV% so far.

Khudobin will start Friday in Pittsburgh.
Perry will make his Stars debut on Wednesday.
Perry has missed the first seven games of the season with a fractured foot but will play Wednesday in Columbus. Perry is not the same player he once was, but he’ll get a chance in the top-6 right away, skating on the second line with Roope Hintz and Mattias Janmark.
Bishop will start Wednesday in Columbus.
Bishop allowed four goals on 22 shots in the Stars loss in Buffalo on Monday. The Stars have stumbled out of the gate, with Bishop going 1-3-1 with a 2.78 GAA and .895 SV% in five games. As rough of a start as it has been, Bishop should be one of the best options on tonight’s six-game slate. The Blue Jackets are 2-3-0 and are averaging just 2.20 goals per game (t-26th).

Perry (foot) will be a game-time decision.
Perry has missed the first seven games of the season but appears set to make his Stars debut on Wednesday. The Stars returned two forwards to Texas (AHL) on Tuesday, paving the way for Perry to enter the lineup. Perry’s best days are behind him—he was on a 16-goal, 11-assist per 82 game pace last year but had a devastating 4.4 on-ice SH%.
The Stars have recalled Denis Gurianov from Texas (AHL).
The Stars have reassigned Nick Caamano to Texas (AHL).
Caamano appeared in all six games with the Stars during his call-up, scoring one goal on six shots while playing 11:00 ATOI. Caamano’s return to the AHL is a sign that Corey Perry will be back in the Stars lineup as soon as Wednesday.
The Stars have reassigned Joel L’Esperance to Texas (AHL).
L’Esperance had one goal on two shots while playing 7:20 ATOI in three games during his call-up. L’Esperance was a healthy scratch on Monday and his return to the AHL suggests that Corey Perry could be back on Wednesday.
Bishop will start Monday afternoon in Buffalo.
Bishop surrendered two goals on 29 shots in the Stars shootout loss to the Flames last Thursday. Anton Khudobin started Saturday, so Bishop comes into this afternoon’s game well-rested. The 32-year-old has gone 1-2-1 with a 2.48 GAA and .910 SV% in four games this season. Buffalo has played well early-on, going 4-0-1 while averaging 4.00 goals per game (t-4th).

Bishop is expected to start Monday afternoon in Buffalo.
Khudobin will start against the Capitals on Saturday.
Khudobin's only other start this season was a 4-3 defeat at the hands of the Red Wings on October 6. He allowed four goals on 33 shots. He draws a difficult assignment tonight against the high-scoring Capitals. Khudobin posted a 16-17-5 record in 41 appearances last season, registering a 2.57 GAA and a .923 SV%.
The Stars have assigned Denis Gurianov to Texas (AHL).
Gurianov was a healthy scratch in Washington on Tuesday and his demotion to the AHL suggests that one or both of Jason Dickinson and/or Corey Perry could be ready for Saturday’s game. Gurianov, who failed to record a point in his first three games this season, had 48 points (20G / 28A) in 57 AHL games last year.
Bishop will start Thursday vs. the Flames.
Bishop allowed three goals on 32 shots in the Stars overtime win in Washington on Tuesday. The victory ended a three-game slide to start the season for Dallas and pushed Bishop to 1-2-0 with a. 2.71 GAA and .902 SV% on the year. Bishop is 17-8-2 on home-ice dating back to the start of last season and did not give up a goal on 41 shots in two games vs. the Flames in 2019-20.
Gurianov will be a healthy scratch on Tuesday.
Gurianov had a chance to showcase that he was ready for the NHL and struggled, failing to record a point while playing 9:19 ATOI in the first three games of the season. Joel L’Esperance will replace him in the lineup.

L’Esperance will draw into the Stars lineup on Tuesday.
L’Esperance will make his season debut tonight in Washington. The 24-year-old spent most of his 2018-19 season in Texas (AHL) where he scored 30 goals and 15 assists (45 points) in 54 games. L’Esperance will skate on the third line with Radek Faksa and Andrew Cogliano.

Perry (foot) will be re-evaluated on Thursday.
Perry skated for the second straight morning skate on Tuesday and will be checked by doctors on Thursday. If he is cleared, Perry could make his Stars debut vs. the Flames on Thursday or vs. the Capitals on Saturday.

Bishop will start Tuesday in Washington.
Bishop surrendered three gaols on 30 shots in the Stars loss in St. Louis on Saturday. Anton Khudobin went Sunday in Detroit, so the Stars will go back in Bishop as they look to avoid an 0-4 start in Washington. Bishop was 1-0 vs. the Capitals and went 10-8-0 with a 2.09 GAA and .931 SV% on the road last season.
Bishop is in the starter's crease at the Stars morning skate.
Khudobin will start Sunday in Detroit.
Khudobin started a career-high 37 games, going 16-17-5 with a 2.57 GAA and .923 SV% in 2018-19. Ben Bishop started the first two games of the season, including the first game of the back-to-back, so Khudobin will go tonight in Detroit. Khudobin was 9-10-4 with a 2.74 GAA, .918 SV% and two shutouts on the road last year. As good as this matchup looks, the Red Wings did have an impressive showing in their season debut (5-2 win in Nashville).
Bishop leads the Stars onto the ice for warmups.
Bishop gave up two goals on 20 shots in the Stars 2-1 loss to the Bruins on Thursday. Both goals came in the first period but Bishop settled in gave the Stars a chance to comeback. His season starts against the two teams that were in the Stanley Cup Finals in the spring. He was 2-1-0 with a 1.69 GAA and .941 SV% in three starts vs. the Blues last year.
